Lavender turkey question - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Reviving an old thread to ask a question.  How large will Lavender Turkeys get?  I have ten eggs going in the bator in the morning and I'm just curious.  This is my first venture into the land of turkeys.

How can I think outside of the box when they won't let me out?

I recently processed a 3 1/2 year old Lavender (aka Self Blue) tom.  He dressed out at 18.5 lbs.  It is my experience that the Lavenders tend to be slightly smaller than the Blue Slates.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.
