Hatching Eggs

Sorry to say but there will not be any more hatching eggs from our turkeys this year.  We seem to have reached this point much earlier than any other season I can recall, and I think the main issue has been the weather. 

The hens started well and fertility has been fine, but they just haven’t laid as consistently or for as long as in other years.  With very few exceptions it would seem this has been a common trend with other turkey keeper we have spoken to.  I suspect we will find the occasional egg as we do the rounds but I doubt that any will lay in sufficient numbers to be able to sell hatching again until next year.
