I could send this as a PM, but there may be others with the same questions... First, what is the best age to wing band a turkey, and do you have any advice on which bands are best? My other question... I have 3 toms right now, 2 White Holland and 1 Regal Red. I have 4 WH hens that I plan to breed with one WH tom, and 4 BBW hens that I plan to breed to the other WH. If I set up to do the line breeding that you described, my concern is that the WH are all from the same source. Do you think it would work ok? They are from Kevin. Would it be better to get a tom or some hens from a different source? I do know that the WH and BBW are from different sources, so I can work some of them into the breeding plan but I would like to keep a line of pure WH, too. The RR tom will only have 1 hen this year, a BBB (the only hen that I have right now that is suitable for trying to expand my RR population). I only have 21 acres, how long before the place is over taken by breeding pens?
