I had a question and hope at least one had some sort of experience on this. I plan on getting a few turkeys come spring and I'm hoping to end up with a tom and two hens or so. I would like to hatch some of their eggs and raise their young for meat. I know the broad brested varieties can't breed naturally so I was wondering if I could crossbreed with a type that breeds naturally. I.E. If I have a bourbon red tom could he fertilize the eggs from broad brested bronze hens? I know they wouldn't be as big as a pure broad brested but I would just like a self sustaning meat flock for my family and I. Or would this just not work?
