Hi there, happy new year! I have 2 Royal palms a female an male. They got pardon thanksgiving time when 4 of the 6 made it to the table. Considering keeping these 2 to start egg production and maybe get more turkeys for next thanksgiving. My question is at what age do they start laying? They are maybe 7 8 months old now maybe 9, need to look through receipts to figure the exact age out. Also do I need both male and female to produce eggs? Obviously if I want little turkey chicks then yes but what about just producing eggs? DO turkeys need both genders? Thanks a lot! I will post pictures of the 2 fatties soon.
