    Just curious to know how old everyone's turkeys are. How old can a turkey live to be?

    Mine are 10 months old. I know they can live at least that long. [​IMG]

    I have some hatching right now to some that are several years. Heritage birds can live 15 years or so.

    I got two in '08. They are still very much alive and still laying eggs.
