At what age would you butcher a royal palm turkey tom? I have an extra tom and have had no takers on trying to sell him, so when he gets to an appropriate age/size we are going to have him butchered... Ive never raised "regular" turkeys, so dont realy know when they would be mature enough for that... He is 12 weeks old right now. Thanks. Sorry about the heading.. My curser jumps all over the darn computer and I didnt catch the typo until just now..And I cant figure out how to correct the post heading..
