What hatcheries sell sexed turkey poults?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'd really like to get some turkeys, but all hatcheries sell them as straight run only. Anyone know where I can get sexed poults? 

 

P.S. I'm aiming mostly at heritage turkeys, especially Bourbon Reds.

Not sure what type of turkeys your looking for...but noticed your in MN. Contact @duluthralphie on the "Surviving Minnesota " thread. He will be setting eggs.

Meyer has Broad Breasted Whites and Broad Breasted Bronze, sexed.

If you want a turkey for a pet, the broad breasted are bred to butcher, you would want a heritage breed turkey.

I have found Broad Breasted turkeys aren't nearly as fated to the butcher block as broiler chickens--especially hens that have some access to pasture/free-range.   Tip: if you decide to get "heritage" start with one or two, not a minimum order of 15.  Heritage turkeys made my goats seem well-behaved.
