The gobblers on my farm are hen'd up awfully bad right now. Generally speaking, when can we expect nesting to really start occurring. I know this changes by area and the particular season but what are the traditional time windows?
They might be just starting to lay in some places but I doubt it. Keep in mind a hen can store sperm for like 3 weeks and they will lay a full clutch of 12-14 eggs before setting (1 a day).
My guess is that it'll be AT LEAST 2 full weeks before there's any nests out there that are mostly full of eggs. It's been so cold and crappy, they may not have even started laying yet...much less setting.
