I am new to having turkeys this year got some last spring and I have 3 left from the holiday season for breeding in the spring. I have a tom bourbon red, 2 hens a blue slate and royal palm. I am guessing they will probably start when the days get longer and warmer so around april but not sure. figured I would ask to make sure. My birds are free range and roost in the trees at night they dont like it in the shack with the geese and ducks.
