    Finally got land and want to start a garden along with producing eggs and meat birds but also want pretty and friendly birds. I'm looking at getting turkeys for pleasure, breeding and for meat. I'm looking at royal palms and bourbon reds. I've read they are good for large eggs and used for meat but want to know opinions and also what all I would need as for space for them. Here is one of many posts to come ;) starting from scratch

    [​IMG] I have never raised those turkeys, but have heard they are great breeds (and beautiful!)

    I haven't raised turkeys before, but you may find some help if you post in the Turkeys section that Bantamlover21 linked to.[​IMG]

    I hope you can find the answers you need!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I love to eat turkey but, I've never had them running around live.
