Turkeys can be shown from about 8 months old as Toms and pullets

They should start to eggs at 10 - 11 months old, if you have breed them yourself, it will vary if you buy them.

They seem to take after there mothers, I bought my original ones and the female did not lay until 18 months old, but since, it is every June / July I get eggs. But saying that, they seem late this year!!
