On the average it take about a year for them to begin laying, if born in the Spring, will begin laying in the spring or if born in the Fall, they will begin laying in the Fall. That does not mean that every Turkey will fit that schedule. Hope that helps.

I have also added some Website addresses where you can find some other information about turkeys
