Totally out-of-season, and unexpectedly, we found a Lilac Turkey egg in with the turkeys this morning. We were not expecting eggs until spring, when “most” turkeys will lay their limited numbers of seasonal eggs. Apparently, March or February through early summer is typical in the Northeast, unless you don’t take the eggs away from the hens, at which point they will feel compelled to “go broody” and take care of the eggs that they are seated on, and stop production of any more.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings. 🙂
