    For you.. I would either get them from Mt.Healthy or Meyers Hatchery. Both have good stock....


    Look at this hatchery for broilers www.centralhatchery.com

    Ok another question .. Since I am only doing about 10-12 turkeys and they will be tractored should I get only Toms, only hens, or straight run???? The cornish I am not concerned about but wasnt sure about fighting with the turkeys...

    Also I guess I'll have to find a few folks to go in woth me on the broilers .. I dont think I can handle a hundred [​IMG]

    Thanks for the feedback folks..

    Quote:For a small operation, the gender of the turkeys shouldn't matter. I know the commercial operations go with all hens because they don't fight each other and therefore make a prettier carcass.
    Good luck!

    We didn't try to figure it out, we ordered 100 last year and they grew out wonderfully. I think we lost 3 birds of 106.

    I would recommend them.
