    An alternate method



    You may or may not get lucky trying to figure it out. I don't recommend getting just 2 poults as I find they have a much better chance of surviving in larger groups. I also don't recommend having a pair of turkeys. I like to have four to five hens for one tom. It helps to keep the tom from over breeding a single hen.
