    I need to buy 25 baby turkeys. Only need 4 but can never find a place who will sell only 4. Last year I spend a day calling hatcheries. But I thought maybe someone here may know if any hatcheries sell right now. Turkeys that is. White Breasted.

    It is for my kids at the fair. thanks

    I deal Hatchery has a sale on them right now, and you only have to buy 10. This is the last day for the special.

    Check Craigslist. People often sell them on there.

    Well, I just ordered 20 Turkeys. I can sell them to other 4-H kids as well. Some have asked me to get them for them. Kind of like shooting yourself in the foot I guess. Oh, well.
