    Here are the two turkey poults I brought home the other day. I have no clue what they are besides adorable and fun to watch. [​IMG] We have them in an aquarium with a 4 week old white crested black polish that was getting seriously picked on by the other chicks. [​IMG] They are doing awesome together. They are so much heavier than the chicks were at their size. On to the pics, maybe someone can help i.d. them for me?? The chick is doing fine now too. His head is healing and we might get some feathers up there now.

    This is Christmas. (no we're not eating it!!)

    It is 28 days for turkey eggs.
    By the pictures the one looks like a bronze and the other poult could be anything from a royal palm, burbon red, or white. Have fun and enjoy. Got to love those turkeys.

    98 gt, I don't know about incubating. Haven't gone there.... yet! [​IMG] I bought these at the feed store I bought my goslings at. I had talked to my hubby about them and they were already there, so I couldn't resist. Good luck with the eggs!!

    I'm so hoping for a Royal Palm!! No matter what I will love them both. My hubby is already attached to Thanksgiving. He adores it. So much personality already!!

    We are definitely not eating them!! Just a joke. One is all fall colors, so Thanksgiving. The other is white and made us think of Christmas!! We will not be eating them though. I would order the giant white ones to eat, not these adorable little babies!!
