In the Brooder
- Sep 14, 2009
It took months for my turkey order to arrive. I ordered 20, received 19 live and 2 dead. So 9 royal palms & 10 bourbon reds arrived alive last month. Lost one RP the first night but it was weak when it got here. All the others learned to eat/drink quickly. I spend hours with them, hand fed them until they "got it." Over the last 3 weeks the bourbon reds are all dying one by one. Fine one minute and dead the next. I am left with 8 RP's & 1 BR. Why just the BR's? At $10 a pop hard to watch them die off. Those are the ones I wanted the most. Frustrating and expensive. I tried to buy local, couldn't find quality birds they all looked like mutts with red leaking on the RP's so I declined. Just venting.
