Hi, I got 18 toms this year as meat birds for christmas. Weve kept chickens but this is first year with turkeys and ive totally loved every minute! Thing is, as we got them as day old poults it turns out one of them is a hen. They are as far as I know the most common white turkey you can get, im in Ireland and when ordering them they were 2e each and the breed had a number after it. I am going to raise turkeys again for sure but was wandering would it be possible to breed the hen I have with a pedigree breed as I know I couldnt keep any of the toms I have to breed with because they get too big and A.I would be the only way. Id like to know would it be possible to keep her could she even live that long as she was bred to be a meat bird, it would be next spring before she would lay is that correct. Also as she is a meat bird is there any chance that she would go broody? But really would like to know could she be bred with and if do what bteed would you recommend. Thanx a mil.
