    I have someone interested in a pair of my Bourbon Reds, but I have no idea what a fair price for them is. I know in this area day-week old MW poults were going for $10-12 earlier this spring. These guys are about 3 months old now.

    Here are a couple pics of them.

    Down here in Texas they would only fetch about $20.00 each.

    I sold my 2 month old Bourbon Red males for $15.00 and my 2 month old females for $20.00 but this is Louisiana, so you may be able to sell yours for more than that.

    Nice birds! Good Luck and let us know how much you are able to sell them for.

  4. it really depends on the area you live in and the going rate. We start our poults at $10 ea. and go up from there. Adults go about $30 here but they are pretty common. Check your local craigslist or a livestock type sale paper. That will give you an idea.

    Looks like $20 each is about average for this age around here.

    This is my first experience with turkeys, and I have to say I really like them. They're quite the social bunch!
