    I took my hen to the local feed store to hopefully mate with their tom. I left her for 5 days. There was a lot of afternoon delight going on since the back of her head is all tore up.
    She had started laying in Dec '08 atleast 6 eggs a week. She has been home for 10 days and no eggs as of yet!
    My question is.......... was she so traumatized she has quit laying and will start up again who knows when?

    I want baby turkeys!!

    Turkey hens don't lay all year round, only during a particular mating season they mate. Depending on the breed mating season may be over.
