@mountain mom : Most of my turkeys go to market. A few are sold as poults, but most are raised for Thanksgiving dinners. I select the best for my breeding stock, I am focused on Narragansett right now, though I may keep a trio of Bourbon Red as well. Narragansett were almost extinct and finding large birds that meet APA standard for color and conformation is hard. I have a lovely tom, but he's a little on the light side at about 18 pounds as a yearling. I have one really nice hen, but she is small, perhaps 14 pounds as a yearling. I am trying to select for size and conformation as I already have the right colors.
