    Hello, My name is Sarah. I'm new of course.. I was wondering if there are anyone selling/Breeding Ocellated Turkeys. I know they are very costly, and know they also need to be in a Very warm climate. I have been wanting these forever But I live in Northern Minnesota. I also realize how difficult they can be to take care of and breed. I will pay $1,500.00 per turkey AND// OR $200.00 Per egg of an Ocellated Turkey. I want to raise them and keep the population up!

    Yeah, he's on Facebook, the Phasianus Forum. I still have 4 Golden males, 1 2yr old Bianchi male, and a trio of Zerafshan's to sell but other than those I've sold everything I hatched this year.
