    I have been raising Merriams Wild Turkeys for just over 5 years and have 46 in my breed stock. I am looking to add another strain to my flock....does anyone have any good looking Merriams? Not looking for a cross...

    Also - I have poults for sale at $ 25 each...PM me if interested.

    Thanks!
    Richard

    I have a two year old tom in north TX come and get him. He is a little flighty for my taste. i like the temperment of my BR better.

    I think that is a Tom you got off of me. If so... He would trace back to Richard's stock. Let me know if I am wrong [​IMG] If you did get him from me, I'm sorry he's not workin out for ya.

    He is the one I got from you. Very pretty bird, but a little to flighty. I have Bourbon Reds and the temperment suites my environment. I like to leave them out in the yard to free range. He tends to be hard to get back in the pen and it influences the hens. I really like him, he just wont calm down.[​IMG] No reason to be sorry we have and will continue to enjoy him. I just have to be very careful when i let him out.
