    I live in Iowa and have seen some of their birds. I have never ordered from them though. Mostly because I could get the birds cheaper and in lesser numbers from Cackle. Cackle Hatchery lets you mix the turkeys with LF chickens. So I ordered 3 turkeys from them and added them to my chicken order. They ended up sending 4 turkeys and all of them lived. This year I ordered 15 cornish X and 5 BBW Turkeys from Cackle because again they were cheaper and I know I really liked the birds I got last year. They had an excellent growth rate.
