    I am looking for about half a dozen bourbon red turkey poults and would like to get them from show/good stock. Not looking for any crosses.

    Would also like to find blue laced red wyandottes, cochin bantams, and/or brahma bantams. Only looking for healthy stock and really don't want to order from a hatchery due to a minimum order restriction as I'm only looking for a handful.

    For your turkeys, I can't remember their email, but its on a link here somewhere, maybe can someone else can help. Jill and Kevin Porter have beautiful birds, purebred. We've gotten eggs and poults from them, and they're wonderful to deal with! Also there is a giant animal swap May 3rd in Kimmel, IN, we go there every month during the summer 6am-1pm on Albion Rd. Wolf's Giant Swap. Jill and Kevin are almost always there with poults and their furs. Good luck [​IMG]

    I've been to the Swap Meet, but didn't have much luck w/stock from there last year. A lot of sick animals being sold out of there. I was tossing around the idea of going to the first one, but watched too many die that I've brought home from there. You don't know they're sick till later on.

    I would like to get in touch with the people that you posted about and see if I can go pick out some before the Swap Meet. Do you know their email addy?

    Hi there! IF I remember right, you are just south of Porter's in Fremont. Here's a link to their site:

    GOOD LUCK! Porter's are great people to do business with.

    Hi Carole. Thanks for the link, I have an email sent to them. Your right, they are not far from where I live. Are you going to the Swap in May? I'll be out of town that day, so even if I wanted to go - I couldn't. Darn!

    Yeah, i'm planning to go. I have a few extra ducks and lots of fuzzy babies to sell, plus lots of 'other stuff'. Mostly i like to go to look, and my kids always have a blast. We've gotten some crap birds there too, but we've attended for years, and more often than not we get good stuff. Never brought home anything sick though. NOw that we know what to look for, it's much easier to protect ourselves. Have fun with Porters, they are nice peeps![​IMG]
