    I have 2 poults that i bought about a month ago. Both were supposed to be bourbon reds but neither one developed a bump on their beaks but have started developing combs like a chicken.. Both have The white around the eyes like the other poults i bought and still have them. This is the first year that i have tried turkeys any help would be appreciated.

    Do you have a photo? How much do they weigh?

    Where did you buy them from? It sounds like you didn't get turkeys, but hard to know for sure. At just one month old they would be kind of gawky and tall and skinny, but still fairly similar to the chicks.
