    I have 4 turkeys 3 males 1 female, The jenny is pre maturely laying eggs first 1 on DEC, 28 last one FEB,1. I found out it was because of the heat lamp I had on them. It wasd making them think it was spring but now I can't get more eggs... I want to hatch turkey poults but I can't. Can I trick them onto thinking it is winter and then lat spring come natrually.... help ASAP

    I think things will be just fine. I don't think it matters that she laid a few eggs, we have had very warm days in January and then the weather turns cold again. Mother nature does this sort of thing all the time.
