On average, one turkey lay between 120 and 150 eggs per year. But there are mothers, record holders, able to carry and sit out up to 220 pieces. Turkeys have one feature. The younger the individual, the smaller the egg, although in larger quantities during the season.
The very first egg at the beginning of laying turkey produces in the early morning until 8 am, and the following days in the afternoon (about 12-15 hours).
When the turkeys begin to carry eggs, they are taken to a house where they are allowed to be stored for no more than 10 days, keeping the temperature between +13 and +18 oC. Gradually, having collected a masonry in the amount of 11 to 20 pieces, the future offspring are placed under the poultry, while the shell is marked with a marker. A new egg is taken into the house.
These domestic birds are famous for being able to sit on the roost for several days, without even getting up to eat or take a walk.
Therefore, breeders often have to maintain a normal rhythm of life of turkeys for high productivity. If the bird refuses to drink or eat, then the owner of the farm must independently plant it closer to the trough and the water bowl.
