I know that they only breed once a year but can the hens store sperm for the rest of the year and have more than one batch of poults?
How many times a year do turkey hens hatch babies?

I've been reading that they do breed quite a bit and keep the sperm from a mating in their oviduct for up to 4 weeks. I don't know if they will raise more than one bunch a season. I think that if you take the poults..they will. I'm learning too. My girl has 6 eggs so far and I'm so excited =)
