Turkey egg fertilitygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I have a hen turkey that was sitting on an empty nest, there was egg shells and she had several feathers missing. I moved her to a pen and now she is laying again. My question is, are her eggs fertile even though she has not been with a tom since the breakup of the nest.Thanks

If it's longer than three weeks from breeding, the fertility will be dropping off. After four weeks you won't be getting many fertile eggs at all, although turkeys can go longer than that sometimes and still have fertile eggs.
