    No problem. it may take a few months to get it s heduled. We lucked out. Originally I was told it would be a couple of months, then two weeks later they were here!.

    We raised two turkeys this past year. One committed canine suicide, the other attempted the same thing, but we saved him. He was delicious! Now I have a total of 9 veticle feet of wood fence and netting. I hope that will keep them in... I think that clipping wings, though effective, makes them look stupid.

    Verticle feet, surrounding the entire chicken yard......Spell check doesn't work while I'm in the office...

    I was looking at the broad breasted bronze, I've read they were good to raise in the city, not that noisy and very gentle. Most of the Hatcheries I look at say min of 25 birds! I'm ambitious and all, but 25? even if you lose some, I'd be overrun with birdies...

    I would love to have two turkeys to raise next year. There is a guy down here sells them on Craigslist. I just have to wait for him to list again for the coming season. He charges $50+ per grown bird for those who just want to buy a non commercial bird around thanksgiving.

    Ideal hatchery has a minimum of ten, we got most of our chickens from them and they've all been healthy

    Awesome! I'll look and see when they start selling them again. My husband just shook his head and they have bets on if I will be able to eat it or not.

    I will be working on DH on the Turkey Issue. No matter what I have to wait until they can live outside without their momma. I don't get why the garage count as 'part of the house' when there are no air ducts out there. :rolleyes:
