You may or may not get lucky trying to figure it out.  I don't recommend getting just 2 poults as I find they have a much better chance of surviving in larger groups.  I also don't recommend having a pair of turkeys.  I like to have four to five hens for one tom.  It helps to keep the tom from over breeding a single hen.
