My husband picked me up a couple of BBB turkey poults from the feed store when I was feeling blue. It was very nice. I've raised them with my chickens, planning to eat them. Actually, I was planning to slaughter tomorrow. They're about six months old. But they're so personable. I suspect I have a hen and a tom, but the hen can't stand up entirely. She gets around fine, and does a crazy little flying waddle to get to me if I have a treat, but I'm worried that she'll break down and be miserable. Her mobility hasn't changed in the last month, once I started letting all of my poultry out into my garden to free range. The tom is fine. But if I'm going to slaughter them, I'd best decide now, before they get too big for my smoker or roaster. And before I name them! Is this a breed that can reproduce, or are they too big and ungainly to get the job done without AI? Is my vague plan of eating their offspring instead foolish? They're almost too big to fit through the pop door to the coop too, so if we're going to keep them, we'll need to build them some sort of winter shelter.
