    Hi, I have some turkeys for sale that I think will fit the bill. I'll pm you separately......regarding them....

    Would you be able to drive to Bowdon, GA.....These are adults btw and would give you a nice stock for them.

    Have a blessed day....It will be this evening after I talk with my husband about my idea and get a price set on this flock....

    Have a blessed day and Happy New Year's.

    We tried with rio grands,raised in a 50x50 pen no top the plan was to let them come and go as they wanted,with the hopes they would stop coming back and do ok on there own,problem was they did not rost in the tree's about the 3 time they were out the coyotes got them,if I were ever to try it again would start off with eastern's,they roost in the trees and seem to be more flighty.Trick is to not spend any time with the birds,they will get used to you and not act like wild birds.
    good luck
