Earliest place to purchase baby turkeys?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I need to buy 25 baby turkeys.  Only need 4 but can never find a place who will sell only 4.  Last year I spend a day calling hatcheries.  But I thought maybe someone here may know if any hatcheries sell right now.  Turkeys that is.  White Breasted.

 

It is for my kids at the fair.  thanks

I deal Hatchery has a sale on them right now, and you only have to buy 10. This is the last day for the special.

Check Craigslist. People often sell them on there.

Well, I just ordered 20 Turkeys.  I can sell them to other 4-H kids as well.  Some have asked me to get them for them.  Kind of like shooting yourself in the foot I guess.  Oh, well.
