I penned up my turkeys into their correct breeding pens a bit late. Some hens may have been bred by the wrong toms before I did so, and turkeys generally tend to have a long fertility period after breeding. In the wild, a single breeding can take care of the whole clutch, and they lay about every other day.

I've waited two weeks and just put the toms in with them yesterday. There still may be mixed breeding with the eggs, but can anyone say if it is normal for birds to be "last in, first out" on semen storage? Does a fresh breeding counteract an older breeding for the most part in birds?

Thanks.
