    I'm almost 14 and I have already owned chickens for 2 years. I really love them but I wanted to try turkeys, and I think that my mom's on board. Well, I would love to show my turkeys and I was wondering how I could start doing that. How do you get into it. I was hoping I could show chickens, too!

    What are some good breeds to start with for each? Turks and Chooks.

    My birthday is coming up on the 30th so this is my present. [​IMG]

    How many should I start with? A trio or 2 trios? My space is quite limited and noise is a bit of an issue so roosters should be minimal. I have close to 3 acres.

    Really? Then how do adults do it? I really don't want a taste contest, just a breed-for-the-best contest. I would join 4h, I just don't want to butcher my pride and joy.
