    Man in my town just came knocking on my door.... He was told I have birds. Oh boy.

    He offered me his easten wild turkey flock and his ringneck flock... he has around 10 of each. 3-4 males to 6-7 hens... Im not sure of total breakdown.

    Anyway. a couple of the turkey males are 4-5 years old.... most of the hens are this years hatch.... dont know the ages on pheasants. I am guessing these must be some pretty impressive male turkeys! I will probably keep a trio if they get along with my peacocks. if anyone wants the rest... please let me know. [​IMG] I'll send pics after I get them.

    I will take the mans ringnecks too, but dont intend on keeping any... he's just in a hurry to rehome them. So if somone wants them.... let me know.

    After I get them I'll post in the BST section... this is just a early heads up [​IMG]
