How can I tell the age of a mature turkey? What is their average lifespan and at what age do they finish laying?

Cheers
Sonya

the gobbler turkeys have spurs, so this could be a good indicator of age for the males. They seem to be a lot more long lived than chooks. We had an old turkey that layed for many years. Not really up with turkeys that much, but searching the net might give you some answers :). Nice looking eggs.
