Hello,

I have done some reading up on turkeys as I am hoping to acquire a female sometime this year or next. I would like to start with a very young bird or even hatch eggs. I am wondering if anyone here has sent hatchable eggs through the mail and if those eggs were indeed hatched into healthy birds.

I know someone who had ordered button quail eggs from a very accountable breeder but the travels were too careless and when she opened the eggs after they did not hatch, found that the eggs had been scrambled up and unable to produce chicks.

I have checked Craigslist but only found adult birds and only one person ever got back to me.

Is there anyone here who would consider sending hatchable eggs through the mail? Who would you send by? How much would you charge for how many eggs? I live in Florida.

Thank you,
Koey

We have had successes shipping Turkey eggs.But shipping egg doe have it risks but we do ship differently and very carefully which i a big help. Handling issues and inabilility to control how eggs are hatched or brooded are beyond our control. They are not currently in season of course. So if you are interested in turkeys I'm sure that you will find several who are able to help with your interest. There is a section of BST devoted to other poultry as well. Hope this was helpful and have a blessed day.

Thank you very much, this is helpful. I definitely would like to find someone (or a few people) who would want to ship turkey eggs so I have the possibility of breeding later on without running the risk of inbreeding.
