    I am in sw Arkansas and need a bourbon red tom for the 3 girls I hatched in 2012. Want one old enough to fertilize eggs. Does anyone have one they would part with? Or do you know anyone within driving distance that has one they would be willing to sell??

    Too bad you are not closer to NW Ohio! I have two extra Bourbon Red Jakes - 8 months old who are starting to get a little too feisty with each other. I have another one named Sweet Pete that I am keeping as a breeder - his brother Bubba is real nice and I would like him to go into a breeding program - not a lot of people around here who want turkeys for breeding. If I can't find Bubba some hens somewhere he is going to have to go to freezer camp. I have 7 males and only have 8 hens. Too many males.......

    Thanks for your responses. Kuntrygirl, I had already looked at your location and it is quite far. I am 30 miles north of Texarkana. Bunnibird, I never would make it to Ohio. I'm a terrible driver.
    I contacted Frank and he has some spares available. So I will be getting them when the weather clears up. I am getting 2 males and 1 female. Very excited as that will give me 2 trios.Thanks to both of you. Emily
