    Hell, I have been raising Bourbon Red Turkeys for a while and I think I should get some new blood in my flock. I am willing to trade around 20 eggs for 20 eggs depending on what you can get with your flock. We can always ship them to each other. I have done so before Hopefully, we could have a mutually beneficial trade.
    Thanks for looking

    I have no turkey eggs to trade, I just have been in search of bourbon reds for a while and am wondering if you sell eggs?

    I am interested in keeping just one Tom but I could incubate a few and give the rest to friends, what is the minimum you would ship?

    I could ship anywhere from 6-12 eggs currently with my current egg production.

    I'm interested in buying a few eggs as well. Price?


    Edited to add: I have no turkeys currently so no turkey eggs to trade

    Here are my rates currently. They are fairly expensive since this is a heritage breed and the egg production isn't ideal quite yet.
    4 eggs: $30 plus shipping
    8 eggs: $50 plus shipping
    12 eggs: $65 plus shipping
    (USPS Priority Mail)
    Around $12-18 to Maine and $10-16 to Indiana.

    I would like some too, 12 eggs to CALIFORNIA :)
    What's your fertility rate typically? Do you sell day-oldish turkeys?

    Shipping would be about $12 making it $77 total. All of the eggs that I have cracked to check for fertility have been fertilized. I've got 2 nice toms doing their job.
    Also, I usually do send extras if they are available.
    I do sell baby turkey poults but only locally. I do not ship those.
