    I am curious as to why you would want BBB hens for a pet turkey flock. They are very prone to leg problems and other health issues due to their size. If you were planning to breed them, you would need to either cross them with your BR or go with AI if you planned to breed to a BB type tom. Heritage birds are much better for pets IMO...

    At 6 months they would be eating size.
