    Hi. Love the website all the info and great pics. My first year raising turkeys sure has been fun so far. I started with 5BBB day old poults from McMurray. Now I'm down to two. I lost 3 within 24 hours from leg injuries. I think they got them caught in my portable wired dog kennel. I put cardboard around it after that. I liked them so much i could wait til next year to get more so i went and found some 2month old red bourbon/royal palm cross. I bought all 5. Within a couple hours i lost one to my big dog. Not really his fault. I was sitting in my little pen with him right below my feet and it only took a split second.
