    If I buy a turkey do I need to buy 2 of them?

    Not unless u are looking at breeding. One turkey by itself will do fine.

    You don't have to, but my turkeys like to travel with their buddies. They like to flock together. Also, if you buy two, and one dies, you still have a bird for a November dinner. Turkeys are less work than chickens once they are feathered out, and a joy to have around
