How many hens can one tom turkey breed?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My father-in-law is wanting to know since we already have 4 hens but someone listed 3 hens for sale at a cheap price. He was thinking about buying them since they are different breeds than what we have. He likes a variety but didn't know if our 2.5 yr. old blue slate tom could breed that many.

Cats,  peafowl, dairy cows, dogs, and a son.

Thanks for the replies. The turkeys were sold by the time he called up but we may buy more later on. Been seeing a lot of turkey ads lately. Probably be better to buy some closer to spring.
