We have been collecting some breeding birds this fall, getting ready for next spring to be our first go at breeding heritage turkeys. We currently have Bourbon Red, Narragansett, Royal Palm and Blue Slates, with possibly some Bronze coming. We're attempting to put together a plan of what we might be facing next year in the way of poults and ultimately mature birds. I know this is a difficult thing to predict as there are far too many variables outside of our control, but what's people's experiences? We will be incubating the eggs, leaving the hens to continue laying, and expect to lay/hatch as long as the birds do for the season (we're in southern Ontario). I know the range could run from no hatching whatsoever to every single egg producing a mature bird. The first option would be devastating, and the second is probably near impossible. What is the middle ground that we're likely to face? Thanks!
