    I'm super excited so I decided to share with you guys that I'm getting 2 royal palm turkey poults tonight!!! I have a standard bronze but I'm excited to bring in a new breed. (My turkeys are for pets not eating haha)

    [​IMG] You will love them! I have 5 right now that are 8-10 weeks old. Just be careful-as Steve says "turkeys look for any excuse to die!" ESPECIALLY poults! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! But yes, one of the reasons I'm getting more turkeys is because one of my bronze turkey poults is being put down soon due to leg and infection problems [​IMG]

    What age are they? I am just curious because I have 5 RP that are suppose to be 2 months. I think they are kinda small but thats the age I was told.
    If I had to guess (again this is just a guess) I would say the bigger of the 2 is a tom and the smaller a hen. One of my five is much larger than the other and seems to be the "protector" of the flock. I am hoping he is my tom. We will see. here are a few pics of mine.
    Enjoy your turkeys!!!

    I forget what age the seller said but I think mine are 6-7 weeks old. I think your poults look about the same age as mine....they are very cute by the way [​IMG]
