Most will reach sexual maturity by 28 weeks of age. Variety, breeder selection for early maturity, light, latitude and weather conditions also play a role in that first egg.

do wild/eastern turkeys have a longer wait time than domestic birds?



I am just learning about turkeys, but last week my DH was out walking the dogs in the pasture and a they came across a wild turkey with poults. I was surprised they hatched out a nest so early because we had a very long cold winter here.
