    26 turkeys I've been wintering over this year, so far they are all looking good, I am striving for longevity and a flock that can adjust to the hot & cold temps we get here in NH, so this winter has been a good test of cold hardiness.
    I have Midget whites, Narragansetts, and Jersey Buff turkeys, considering adding some Bronzes to the group this coming season, am I crazy [​IMG]
    Enjoy the pictures, post some of your own on this thread...

    Which breed do you find handles the extreme cold the best? We're at 9,200ft in the Rockies and we have a very long, cold winter up here.

    Not sure what state your in,here right now it is snowing again. I have Sweetgrass,RioGrande,Eastern and Palms. They all have seen some pretty wicked weather over the years and seem to handle it much better than I do. -30,deep snow,blowing snow and 50 mph winds seemed to have no effect on them.

    Once turkeys are past the 6 to 8 week stage they are tough weather resistant birds, they seem to thrive on the cold weather, my group range outside every day of the year
    during the very hot & very cold weather, rain, snow...etc.
