    I’m getting 2 female turkeys. They are white hollands, about 8 weeks old. I’ve done research. But want to know everyone’s experience with keeping turkeys. Any tips? Any things you wish you would have done differently? Thanks in advance! I’ve already picked the names of my two little girls, Mabel & Myrtle. :love

    At eight weeks old, don't be surprised if they don't end up being hens. I can often sex my poults by 2 months old but would not go guaranteeing them before they are three months old. Late developing toms may not show their true sex until at least 6 months old with a few taking even longer.

    Good luck.
