I was wondering who else has turkey hens that are still laying. Our wether has gotten into the upper 90's to 100 degrees, the turkey hens are still laying every day. I did not think they would lay more than a couple of months, mine have been at it since late February. They are cross breed hens, they look like standard bronze, but their poults look like, calico's bronze, royal palms.

i quit pulling eggs for the incubator last week and my hens are still laying an egg a day. they went broody once and quit for a week or 2 then went right back to laying. hopefully they will go broody and hatch some out theirselves.

Are your hens still laying? I have Holland whites and since the days are getting shorter, my 2 hens have gone into molt. I think I read somewhere that it takes a hen 2 months to molt, so I guess no more turkey poults until spring.
