    If I kept the smaller two (hens) of my BBB turkeys, what age could I expect to get eggs?

    turkeys are a seasonal layer so they are about done for this year, but they could lay a few eggs this fall if they are of age at that time. We have had a few hens that hit that age and start laying eggs and it is in October time, but then they stop and resume in the spring time.
