We raised our first batch of turkey poults this past spring. All meat breed. I'm discovering our tom is wayyy to heavy to be breeding our hens; he is hurting them (ripping their backs up with his feets, hurting their legs somehow, etc.) so he needs to go. I want to try raising a heritage turkey breed next spring. If we end up with a mixed flock of toms and hens again, is that tom going to do the same thing? I know most heritage breeds are quite a lot smaller than a meat breed. Just wondering if I need to stick to just toms or just hens due to injury. Advice turkey people?!
