    Jenn, they posted the question in the breeds section and mentioned BBW's and BBB's. Sorry for not mentioning that in my post.

    You do realize these are not going to do well as pets? Our males didn't make it past 6 months old and their legs gave out. Our female BBB made it about 2 years and her legs gave out. They were all free range and had lots of exercise. It is very sad to watch them grow so fast. I will share some pics of our wilds and BBB hen that I have.

    Here is a broad breasted next to a wild turkey the same age.
