    I have 6 mixed turkey eggs for $15, that includes shipping. I have a Royal Palm tom, and the hens are: royal palm, blue slate, and a narry/bourbon cross. Fertility has been super!

    See a pic of my tom in the "ask Peeps" advice column!

    You're right~ NO ROOM! I may have to set them, but I'd rather not. I thought these were sold. [​IMG]

    Are you close to Indiana? My RP is setting on 13 eggs now, so I "should" have babies soon. After that, if they start laying, I'll let you know. [​IMG]

    Did you sell these yet? How hard are turkey eggs to hatch?

    Yep, these were sold in May. Turkey eggs are easy, they just take a week longer. I've put them under banty hens and they have hatched turkeys.

    hey carole...sorry to ask stupid qs but I have not kept turkeys before...my son and I have chickens and at no point ever anticipate even considering butchering them--> they are pets--> any eggs will be a bonus...do turkeys make good pets/flock birds just for fun if you have no intention of ever eating them? Do ppl eat the eggs? How hard are they to keep ? do the make LOADS of noise? Do you feed them chicken food? and most importantly will they get along with my chickens?

    I'm not Carole but...

    Turkeys make great pets. They are curious and social. My hen eats from my hand - the tom I used to have did also. If they are raised with other poultry, they are very good with the crowd. My hen is relatively quiet but 'replies' to me when I talk to her. The tom that Mother Goose's parents now have was somewhat talkative. But that gooble is a wonderful sound - less intrusive than a rooster crow.

    Mine eat layer crumbles just like everyone else. The eggs are great. Quite a bit richer than chicken eggs and pretty popular with some folks.

    Cool birds!
