    I have a very old (15 years old) Black Spanish tom turkey and he is still doing his thing with my younger hens when they let him (he's very passive). Is there any way he is still fertile?

    Wow. Interesting question. I either read or heard their fertility can decline after 5 years. But I dont know if that's true. I would LOVE to see a picture of him. How cool to have such an old gentlemen!
