    I have 3 turkeys, 60 chickens they all live happily together. i have recently found xlarge speckled eggs in my roosting pen on the floor. my Turkey that has seizures is very submissive and has been staying in the area of the eggs!! I was told it was a Male. hard to tell with her other disorders. when do they show true sex signs!?
    How long do Turkey eggs take to hatch??

    Whay breed do you have? Pictures would help us to guess at the sex, but if you are getting turkey eggs, it has to be a hen. Turkeys are seasonal in the north, but lay almost year round in the south and start around 9 months, but that can vary.
