    I have 2 gorgeous Royal Palm turkeys (Tom and hen) that are about 7-8 months old. We got them to protect our free ranging Silkie chickens during the day. They've been doing a great job at that but now the Tom is getting territorial about his yard, hens, etc.

    I don't have the patience to prove to[​IMG]
    one more animal that I'm dominant. I already have 3 horses and 4 dogs that require this from me everyday.

    We are located in Creston, CA near Paso Robles.

    Holy smokes. Talk about shipping costs.

    Melinda where are you located? I imagine there is somebody who is closer that wouldn't need $500 in shipping to get you some turkeys.

    I live in Stafford, VA. I can't believe it would cost $500 to ship them. WOW! !

    Well I ordered a hound pup a few years back and it cost $250 in shipping and that was direct to the airline. You may be able to find a better deal on a freight line but then you're looking at a week or so of shipment time. There are rules about shipping live animals that you'd want to be aware of.

    I just did a quote...for two turkeys you'd probably be looking at least a large but probably an XL which would be around $400-450

    Hi Sharon. Do you still have these guys available. I live about 45 min from you and am interested in maybe giving them a home.

    These guys went to their new home yesterday. The gal was a turkey whisperer too. Tom loved her!
