Donna, Turkey Vultures usually lay 2 eggs. It takes 28-40 days to incubate, and they don’t fledge until 60-80 days.
No, a month is not enough time. Kevin Kevin J.

As I open the door, there was a loud commotion & then I saw a smallish Turkey Vulture flying inside at the lake end of boathouse! It landed on the gravel & got out under the boat exit doors, the bottom if which is 2 feet above the ground! That was curious, but lately TVs have been perched on roof of & trees near boathouse. However as Rick & I started cleaning the gravel floor, I found in a little scrape with a few leaves one lovely speckled egg! Ms. TV wants to nest in there! Ordinarily this would be fine with me, but june 6 I am moving to Kendal & a couple weeks after that my house (& the boathouse) goes up for sale. Will a month + be enough time for more eggs to be laid, incubated , hatched & chicks fledged? I am SO busy now, I don’t have time to look up this info. Another bother: she is pooping in there & it is quite stinky -not a prime condition for selling real estate! What to do?
