) and i want to know if i will get fertile eggs as long as the hens continue to lay. I want to hatch out some eggs but since i only just got the tom I am hatching chicken eggs first and wanted to make sure i will still be getting fertile eggs in 21 days...

tom is a turkey they will not cross with chickens! once you add a male (eggs will be fertile) you will be able to take that male away and have fertile eggs for about 15 days tom

I didn't make it very clear I meant I already have chicken eggs in my bator' and I wanted to make sure there isn't a "breeding season" for turkeys, because I will have to wait till the chicken eggs hatch before I can put in the turkey eggs. you answered my question though!

I have and raise about 300 turkeys, they lay from mid march to early oct some hens lay as many as 90 eggs pure season! 8 breeds, early eggs,have a better hatch rate!! tom!!
