    so my daughter little blue loves her turkeys she has 3 blue slates an one mix.an it looks like they are all toms maybe one hen.so why she was at school me an the wife drove about an hour to look at some birds.they had the best looking breeding pair of narragansetts so they said 50 for the 1.5 year old breeding pair an another 40 for 2 3 months old 1 def hen second looks hen right now.we brought them home an put them in the pen.when she got home she stood there giggling for about 30 mins then said i love them they are so pretty.she is going to post pics tomorrow or sunday.she is selling to of her def jakes an looking for a blue slate hen now.she loves her turkeys she thinks her new tom gobling is the funniest thing ever it scares all the chickens they jump then run away from the turkey pen lol.

    Just keep a a watch on droppings/overall health for a bit (quarantine isn't always necessary or possible, but keep a weather eye out).
