    Does anyone know of a hatchery that will sell just a few turkey poults? I don't need 20, just want a few.

    Edited to say: Sometimes your local TSC will carry turkys during chicks days.

    I can attest only for Hoffman Hatchery.
    They let us split the order for 5 Bourbon Red and 5 Black Spanish poults and they sent 6 Black Spanish. All 11 grew to be beautiful birds.

    I know cackle will let you order chicks, ducks, geese, turkeys, etc together. I ordered one of their bargain specials last year along with a few turkeys, geese, and ducks. So for example, you could order 15 chicks and 5 turkeys. Works out to be a pretty good deal and they have a good selection, healthy birds, and good prices!

    You could also try to hatch your own. That is the best way I find to get chicks when you don't want so many.
