For my friend's birthday, I surprised her with 6 freshly laid Narragansett turkey eggs. She's been trying to find turkeys forever, and as soon as I saw those eggs I nearly tackled the breeder to claim them as mine. Supposedly they're from a champion bloodline, some of the best Narris in the US, according to the breeder. Sporting my prize, I met a very nice Canadian turkey breeder (I think his name was Brian Roblin?) who shared some turkey secrets with me. He also mentioned that poults look and act as if they'll die during their first week of life. Is this true? Are there any other turkey tips I should give my friend before they hatch? I want to buy one of the mature hens when they grow up. So please help us both out!
