    Hey Y'all,

    I want to get some turkeys this year, but I'm trying to avoid having to order 10-15 and having to wait till April.

    Does anyone on here raise and ship poults?

    May be a tough time of year to find poults. Most hens aren't laying right now. Turkeys are seasonal layers. Where are you located. Maybe you are close enough to someone who will have poults this spring.

    Join us on "century of turkey talk" You may be close enough to someone that has turkeys they need to get rid of.

    Just check where I post or Memphis does we are both on that thread.

    Good luck on your search.

    BTW I know someone who has some he wants to get rid of...

    BTW part of the reason for a minimum order is to make sure there are enough birds to keep each other warm during shipping.

    You could buy eggs and have them mailed. Hatch your own.
