I have a BBB hen that's only 5 month old. I found 2 eggs yestetday. I know there not fertile because my Tom's are only a 3-4 months old.

If I got a tom would there be any chance I would get fertile eggs before it gets to cold out?

You'll always get fertile eggs even through the cold. Your biggest problem would be that Broad Breasted Turkeys cannot mate naturally because they are too heavy to mount. Artificial Insemination is normally how they do it. Incubation would be better than having your turkeys attempt. If you need any info about AI find this book:
