    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Make sure to take that into account when you buy them. The broad breasted are generally butchered earlier (younger).

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I only have toms at the moment, and theyre young. The one we butchered a few weeks ago dressed out at like 12.something lbs and this one for thanksgiving dressed at 13.5. I have a bigger tom thats older but hes off limits lol (the wife has made him a house pet..no joke...)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving! We butchered our own (royal palm). I always think store bought tastes like mush...Wild is probably my favorite though. We also smoke ours :)

    Sounds good to me. That dang turkey is spoiled. The wife has turned him into an inside pet if your remember. We butchered one of the other toms a few days ago and ate it today, but when I went out to pick a bird to butcher she freaked out and had to make sure that he was was left alone. I...

    Can 3 toms and a hen live together?

    Not 100 on age cause I kinda forgot the exact day I got them but between 4 and 6 months lol..probably closer to 6..ish... The two that you guys are guessing hens are the two I have always thought/hoped were hens. Both have beards but we all know that doesnt matter lol.

    Can 3 toms and a hen live together?

    I know they get beards. All my turkeys have beards. Hens can get them as well. The two in question have small snoods and not much caruncle development so I am hoping for bearded hens

    Can 3 toms and a hen live together?

    2 Tom's get to live the rest become dinner :) I'll let the 2 questionable live long enough to decide for sure then if Tom's like I think...they get to go in the smoker

    Can 3 toms and a hen live together?

    If it makes you feel any better I was hoping for hens and ended up with 7 Toms instead...Two may be bearded hens, but i doubt it. They look like late developing toms... which means I went 7 and 0 lol.

    Turkey fight.. I think..

    No heritage style or similar turkey is going to get to 40lbs and especially not by 5 months. They've got to be BB turkeys ( "meat type"). Also just let them Duke it out and establish their dominance. If you seperate them it just prolongs it
