    The largest bourbon I have raised to date. (red arrow) Probably going to keep him for breeding,the two behind him are last years toms. I estimate he'll be 25 lbs at normal slaughter time vs 19-20 for my toms last year.

    Anyone else have pictures of big heritage breeds?

    Yup, he's HUGE for a heritage breed.

    Wish I could live on a farm. You are blessed.
  3. I will let you know when my are full grown they are around 6 months now I think I was told that 9 to 10 months is full grown.
    This may or may not be true.
    How old are yours and when you dress them out.
    This is my first year with Turkeys so I will know not to long from now.
    I have some Toms that are 12 to 15 pounds now guessing they fill like they have lead in there buts when we pick them up now.
