Can i put two toms of different breeds together with turkey hens
The different breeds doesn't matter unless you want to raise pure breed turkeys. What does matter is how many hens you have and how big an area you are keeping them in. I try to have four to five hens per tom.
Putting two toms in with two hens is not a good idea especially if it is a small area. It can lead to poor fertility and injured or dead hens. If the toms are pretty evenly matched it can also lead to continuous fights for dominance.
We was going to have 2 toms and 8 hens in a good sized yard
Define a "good sized" yard.
