    Hi my name is josh. I currently own three, 4 month old Chocolate turkeys and one, 5 month old Bourbon red turkey. I was offered to help a man work with turkeys. His original plan was to send me home with some birds to raise, or so he said... I spoke with him on the phone later into the week and he said to me that he would bring three, 6 month old birds over to breed so I could feed them and he would pick them up after breeding season... and split the money with me... am I going to be doing to little? Is that fair he changed his mind about it? should I tell him that I would like to raise some poults for him and he could pick them up for thanksgiving? help ASAP

    this late in the season, i doubt you will get many eggs. split what money? from selling the turkeys, or the eggs? is he providing the feed? are the turkeys BBB or BBW or heritage, either way poults you hatch won't be beg by thanksgiving. eggs in incubator now, 27 days to hatch hatch around first of November, then less than a month till thanksgiving...

    something is wrong, or you may be missing details.
