I live in south central Mississippi. We have pretty mild winters. I have 5 hens and 2 toms. I live in the country on about 30 acres. My turkeys free range until early spring and then go to breeding pens. I found one of my hens today sitting on a clutch of 13 eggs!! I noticed she had been going awol every day, but I didn’t think she was nesting in early January. About a month ago I put a light for security out back, not to far from there roost. Could this be enough light to make her start laying?
