    We got our first turkeys in May. And both are male. One is obviously more dominant so I don't think they will fight (maybe?!?). We will need to try again for females. Should I sell one of the males or is it okay to keep two? And is it possible to buy sexed turkeys? I'm not having any luck finding one that I could trade for or that is around the same age. Eek!

    I would keep both toms so they have company. They shouldn't fight because there's no hens, but if they do I would just let them go at it. You can see later on if you don't need both.

    No one that I know of sells sexed turkeys. The more you buy or hatch the higher the chances of getting a 50/50 ratio.
