So I have owned turkeys in the past but I always somehow ended up with Tom's, so this year I bought some turkey hens for my boy. He just began breeding them, but when he bred them it kind of scared me. Is it usual for when the Tom mounts the hen the hen will began gasping for air after a few seconds? I think my Tom is part meat turkey... I'm just scared that my turkey hen will end up with internal issues from breeding with this Tom. She seems accepting of him, when he struts, she sits for him. But could he be hurting her? Or is this normal?
