    How many clutches of eggs will a turkey usually hatch per year? 1 or 2? This is my first year with adult turkeys, so I'm kind of ignorant on this point.

    If you want them to sit and hatch them I set i dont let my ladies here sit and hatch them and they will lay right up till late fall usually a clutch before she decides to go brooky on you and hatch them is anywhere from 7-10 eggs Hope this helps i go and take my eggs and keep em laying and hatch the babies myself i find they are much friendlier that way .

    She's already hatched a clutch, but the babies are a good size now, and I didn't know if she might try to sit again. If not, no big deal. I am concerned because my other hen went off and hid her nest, and has not come back yet. I expected to see her this week, but nothing so far...I'm hoping nothing got to her.[​IMG]
