    Here's Earl, our youngest and only Bourbon Red tom. We hit a bit of a warmer patch here and he has been showing off all day today! We've had turkeys for years and I still get excited when our younger jakes and toms start to really strut their stuff. We've already got our goslings, chicks, and poults ordered and are ready for the 2015 brooding season. Can't wait!

    I can't wait either. I'll be getting some broad breasted bronze poults and I'll be possibly be getting a few ducklings. Your Tom is a beautiful bird about how old is he?

    Thank you! I haven't raised BBBs in a while. Maybe something for next year. I believe this guy will be a year old in March. What kind of ducklings will you be getting?

    I hope to be getting some runner ducks (hoping for choclate) the only problem right now is because of the H5N2/H5N8 outbreak in Oregon/Washington and ducks being able to pass it we might have to wait. It's not worth losing the entire flock

    Cool! I have three fawn/white drakes and I really like them. I agree. Better safe than sorry. Good luck with your birds, and I hope you get what you're looking for! [​IMG]
