    My hen just layed her first egg for the year today and i'm new to turkeys so was wondering will she lay a egg a day and once she gets a pile start sitting on them or should she start sitting on them the day she lays her first egg?

    Turkeys will normally lay a clutch before they set. Chickens can go broody without an egg under them.
