Since everyone keeps wanting turkey, I got mine from a gentleman outside of Middletown (just south of Harrisburg) last spring. I believe he sells poults every year, probably doesn't have any at the moment. He doesn't sell them until they are a week old, as many people aren't aware of the differences between raising poults and chicks. I believe they were $12 last year, although I bought a lot and got a discount (15/$140, all he had at the time). Bourbon red.
I hope there is a lot of demand for turkey poults. Yesterday I collected 8 eggs from the 6 Black Mottled hens. Not sure how that happened, they are normally not very clever about hiding eggs, but perhaps I was distracted the previous day. Fertility has not been great (which is ok, I don't think I can sell as many as the eggs they produce), but 2 more Midget Whites hatched yesterday.
I free ranged another tom, that makes 5 that are prowling around the farm, gobbling whenever they hear a loud noise. At least that is a lot more pleasant to the ear than those guineas shrieking. Has anyone here had much experience free-ranging turkeys? Is there any certain age that they do better? Maybe I can find a broody hen and switch her eggs with some turkey eggs that are close to hatch and let her teach them the ways of the farm. It'd be funny watching a hen try to get a flock of month old turkeys under her wings at night.
