    So I am new to raising Turkeys and I looked all over the web to find out when Turkeys start to lay. Well to my surprise today I found that one of my Turkeys as started laying. We got are turkeys in March when they were less then a week old. And now they are 6 months old and the female is laying. I was worried that they were both males but now I am sure that I have one of each. I found 4 eggs today all white with reddish speckles.

    Yep, that's about right. Six months is a good rule of thumb for both chickens and turkeys to start laying. Most of the initial eggs won't be fertile, but give her and him time, you will have pullets all over the place.
