BBB hens to Narrangansett Tom?

    I have 4 BBB turkeys about 2 months old - 2 are hens. I was thinking about getting a Narrangansett Tom or another smaller 'breed' of turkey to keep the two BBB hens with as a trio (and butcher the BBB jakes when time comes). Can a Narrangansett Tom inseminate BBB hens naturally?

    I know a man who has a BBW hen and a Royal Palm gobbler and the hen has hatched several broods.
