    I have two black spanish poults and I would love to know what they may look like as adults. If anyone would please share that would be wonderful! How are the black spanish compared to the other breeds of turkeys? Anyone have opinions about this?

    The Black Spanish are a beautiful turkey. The hens are prolific layers but the hens I've had have issues when it comes to sitting on eggs. The toms are vocal and love to strut their stuff. The toms also tend to be very prone to fighting other toms.

    Struttn1 - you have gorgeous birds! I have some 4 month old Bourbon Red's and Black Spanish. They follow me everywhere I go, like little puppies. I like your signature line about 'physco guineas', mine are crazy too! They also follow me everywhere, they are sooo loud.. but I love them regardless.
