    This is my first post on this board but I am ecstatic that I am getting poults this late in the season. My lone RP turkey's mate was killed last Spring. I have tried to hatch out eggs but have had no success. This is what I could be getting in the 15 poult Heritage breed special:

    Black (Also know as Black Spanish)
    Bourbon Red
    Midget White
    Royal Palm
    Eastern Wild
    Rio Grande

    My Tom turkey has been so lonely...He will have some friends before long!!

    I have a lone turkey hatching tomorrow, and 3 friends for it hatching next week. We chose Jersey Buffs exclusively.

    Congrats on your poults!!!

    Congrats! You have a nice variety there...
    Just remember to put marbles in the waterer for a few days to keep them from drowning.
    I find that they also peck at them and encourages them to drink more....
    High protein feed ( I use Meatbird by Nutrena) so their legs will be strong... Good luck!
