    I am wanting to get some turkeys strictly for laying eggs, I dont want to butcher, just for eggs and pets. I have been doing research and so far I have found that Beltsville white, lay a good amount of eggs, but they are so hard to come by. Also Miget whites, but there more sweet then anything. Please help me, also if you have any info on good sites to order from that would be super awesome too.

    Hi, welcome to BYC. Good question. I don't know if one variety lays more than others. Hopefully someone here has an answer. They make great pets!
