Seeing that Thanksgiving is around the corner and demand will be the greatest I'd say
sell them for at least $30 each. In CT they would get at least $50 each.​

I've been tracking my feed cost this year for our turkeys. To get my BBB to 25-30 pounds each it has cost $50 each. So I would ask for a minimum $75.
Not being sure what your local feed is costing you could go check out your local grocery store and see what the price per pound is on their organic turkeys.

I would guess they weigh more than 35, mine which I got about the same time as yours smallest was 22, and went down the road last night, the bronzes that went last week dressed at 25+, and 16+ My whites have been gone since sept 1 and smallest was 17 dressed weight Dressed weight they sell for 2.25 per pound, throw in the Naturally Raised in a Friendly Farm Environment lable you could try for more. Then again in the area I live, the
what is the difference if it came from supermarket or from a farm

mentality seems to prevail.
