Hi I have had Turkeys for some years (Bronce & Narragansett) and this year is the first time I have had problems with fertility. I have one tom and 2 hens. My tom Victor is hatched 2010 so this is his first season of breeding. This year only about 10-20% of the eggs have been fertile It has been no difference during the year, results have been the same every second week when I put eggs in the incubator. Eggs from both hens are fertile so he mates them both even if I very seldom see him in action. Victors father was also shy so I seldom saw him breed either, but he still had about 90% of the eggs fertile. Both hens had good fertilityrates last year when I had Victors father as tom in the flock I like Victor because he is a very nice type and size (very good results from poultry shows) and its not to easy to find a good quality turkey tom in Sweden. He is also a nice bird that behaves well with people and as he and his ladies roams free on the farm during day that is important. He has never been ill and health is important. He is also unrelated to my hens so there is no inbreeding. As this season has been a breeding disaster resulting in only 7 chickens I need to do something about it. So... Is it possible Victor will mature and do a better job next year? Shall I have Victor for dinner and keep one of his young sons? Shall I by a new unrelated tom? Thanks for advice!
