    I'm looking for some hatching eggs from Turkens and Dark Cornish. I want these for myself, don't need show quality. more so lines of good size and frame. I've read that turkens make good meat birds, and I would like to try them free ranging over 2.5 acres.

    They do make great meat birds, and great layers too! I like them because they are EASY to pluck. I just buthered mine cause all i had was roosters. I got mine from Ideal.
