Or should I say the poults are in the mail... I ordered some poults last fall from Kevin Porter. I got the call yesterday followed by an email... They are on their way! I ordered them last August so it feels like I have been waiting forever. Not anything against Kevin, I didn't want them too early since I live in ND. I have just been so excited to get them since the moment I hit 'submit' on the order. Soon I get to see their fuzzy cuteness and I can't wait! I have Regal Red tom and some White Hollands that I got from Kevin in 2009. In January 2011 my turkey barn collapsed under a heavy snow load and one of my WH hens flew off while we were scrambling to move the turkeys to another building. After a few weeks, a major blizzard, and temps in the -30 F range, I finally gave up searching for her. Obviously she was a victim to the weather, lack of food due to snow cover, or a predator got her. Then in March a neighbor called me about a white turkey hen in her yard. It was my girl, and she survived a ND winter on her own! She felt like she was in really good condition, too. Last summer a tech from the state was here to test all of my birds for AI. She said she has never seen white birds that as calm as these guys are. Since I never made pets out of them, I have to give the credit to Kevin and his breeding practices. So since I am beyond impressed with the turkeys I got from him before, this new batch has me really excited. I'm getting the Jersey Buffs that I have wanted ever since I learned of their existance about 15 years ago. I can't wait!!!!!
