    I just bought some bourbon red turkeys and the hens just hatched out some babies a week or two ago. When will they start laying eggs again?

    Oooooooooooo, it won't be any time soon. Depending on how much time, she stays with the poults, it could be months. My hens stay with their babies A LONG time and they do not lay any eggs during that time.

    Well i bought them from a lady and they don't have there poults. I think they were taken away pretty quick. I think that they were only with the poults for a week or two.
