    I wouldn't know how to start to ship the turkeys, they are so heavy.

    Chicken boxes, that I have had, have a maximum weight of 8#. and that cost 40.00 for the shipping.

    Wow the shipping cost would knock us down, I would think. Have you any experience with shipping something so big?

    Here is a picture. And they might could be shipped for 100 plus crating cost, but I'm not really sure. The rules for fowl are different. But you can ship a dog for about 150 plus crate.
    But that might be some mighty expensive turkeys.

    Hey are you into incubating? I have 6 Slate turkey eggs. I ship them safely all over the US with pretty good results.

    They would only cost 28.00 including priority mail. Is that a good idea?

    Have you hatched out any of your eggs? MY hen has been laying and I have a tom with her, but so far I can't tell if the eggs are fertile. I would love to get a few babies. How many total turkeys do you have?

    I have some in the incubator but I don't have any chicks yet. SInce I was getting rid of the slates, I didn't set any, but I was selling them and others have hatched from this pair. Mine will come soon I guess.

    Have you incubated your eggs and candled them. Are they just clear, or do you get masses but no hatch?

    I have only this one pair of slates left. I have 15 royal palms and decided to only carry one breed. I started with 15 blue slates this year but have sold them all but this pair.
