Keeping this in view, how does a turkey mate?

Subsequently, question is, can a turkey fertilize a chicken egg? You can get a turkey/chicken hybrid, but for some reason they only produce male eggs.

Moreover, does male turkey lay egg?

A turkey will lay an egg with or without a male. But they will not be fertile. Without a male, they cannot be placed in an incubator and will not hatch if a hen sets on them.

Why do we not eat turkey eggs?

The main reason is that turkeys lay less than chickens (around 110 turkey eggs per year as opposed to 300 chicken eggs) so they are relatively expensive and are invariably kept for breeding. Of course you can eat grass, but you can't get any great nutritional value from it.
