Turkey birds in the back yard
Here are three of my Bourbon Red turkeys last Friday. The hens started laying about 3 weeks ago and I'm now getting two eggs a day from my two hens. I'll start saving the eggs to incubate in a couple weeks when the weather warms up a bit more. Meanwhile the eggs go on my breakfast sandwich. Turkey eggs taste like chicken eggs yet the yolk is much thicker and does not run quite like a chicken egg. They are a bugger to beak though... Harder shells and tougher membranes than chickens.
I'll try to hatch out a few clutches and let the hens raise a clutch. It's been a couple years since I have hatched turkeys. I currently have two toms with the hens but will down size to one soon. Toms interfere with each other while breeding so I will remove one to help increase fertility. I'll routinely update the progress.
