    These are my first turkeys and I'm curious how long will my Narragansett Toms beards get? and when will they start growing them? My birds are almost a year old now.
    Will they get as long as wild turkeys?

    Mine is 9 months old and his is about 4 inches long. I guess the longer they live the longer they longer it will get.

    Depends on whether they roost/spar etc. They can get pretty long (guy below RP, was 5yr. at time). However, due to wear and tear he's back down to a couple of inches now. [​IMG]
