    I think I have Turkey Fever I am reading everything I can on turkeys I am basing my likes on how the turkey looks pertaining to color. Narragansett is the tops with me followed by Royal Palm and then Bourbon Red. I have chickens and guineas but I got the Turkey Fever. I guess that is a good fever to have. Maybe I should try for all three varieties.

    Cool! I have Bourbon Reds...
    Look up sweetgrass turkeys. I think they are beautiful birds but you might not like them as much. Just thought I'd mention it as you were looking for cool colors.

    Anyway, when do you think you'll be able to get some?

    Not sure I was in contact by PM with a gentleman about some Narragansett eggs so I will have to wait and see. Might go with all three varieties depends on when eggs become available the gentleman has all three breeds so might go with eggs from all three if that is good with him.

    I did look up sweet grass turkey not what I am looking for. Narragansett is my first choice, Bourbon Reds are second choice and Royal Palms are my third choice. and it would be cool to have all three choices I think my granddaughters would love that.
