I have 2 hens and 2 toms, Royal Palms, that are about 9 months old. I wasn't expecting any mating or egg laying till later in spring, NOT in the middle of winter! Should I separate them for a while yet, or do they actually start raising familys this early!? I was going to take the 1st eggs to incubate and then if one was broody, let her try and raise a few. But this was going to happen after I got them settled into their new homes with more space in, Oh , March! Am I way off? This is my 1st attempt at turkeys, we've had chickens for about 5 years. Whole new ball game!
