First Turkey Egg

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In Around the Homestead post, I mentioned that our turkeys hadn’t started laying yet. Today, only a couple of days later, I’m excited to announce. . . 

Our very first turkey egg.
Our turkey hens are ten months old, so it’s about time!

From the left: duck egg, chicken egg, and turkey egg.

The next day, we got our second. We have three turkey hens, so I’m assuming they’ll all be laying soon. After we get a few more, we’ll give them a try.

That’s it for today. Such a small thing to be news I want to share. As I give this draft a last minute check as a preview, I stop at the word I chose to describe this event – exciting. I wonder how many people would see this word as an actual description? Or see it as simply filler for the sentence. I wonder, in a world now filled with non-stop controversial events, how many people see something as ordinary as a bird laying a first egg as exciting? Maybe it would be exciting if it was the world’s first cloned egg. Certainly, there are few like myself, who aren’t obsessed with a fascination for technology and its hoped for potential to change the evolution of our planet. I wonder, why that doesn’t interest me? Why is my way of listening to the news more interesting to me than theirs? Then I shrug and decide I don’t mind being left behind. 

Turkeys are seasonal layers and this is the season for nesting. So, of course we’re wondering if any of our hens will go broody. Time will tell.
