    Those are nice looking airdales. Good luck on the breeding. The monarchs sound cool. Wonder if we have milkweed around here?

    And for Twist, a horse pill is probably any teeny tiny pain pill he has to swallow whole. [​IMG]

    Ok. Don't know what's going on again but I've been trying to get on and post for I know at least ten minutes now. I know I probably have missed the party now. I'll try again tomorrow. Sweet dreams all.

    Best guess, it's a BBW, not a midget white. Midget whites are rather rare anymore, except from rare turkey breed hatcheries or breeders. Either it's a lot younger than they said or they've been feeding it very poorly. My broad breasted bronze hen is much, much bigger and about the same age they have told you (bought her in mid April).

    They're bred for meat, but as long as you don't let them gorge and gorge, they can live a few years. I just saw a 3 year old listed today. I'm keeping my hen for breeding and as a friendly companion. She hangs out "in my back pocket" all the time. Last time we raised BBB, the hen weighed 25# and the tom was 50# after being butchered. So, they are good for meat and good as pets.
