    Yes.....why the "Best of luck?" You have me worried now.

    Also, can anyone tell if they are males or females?

    The Black Spanish appears to have thicker legs than the other. The Black could be a tom and the bronze or whatever it is a hen. That is not a given though.

    Quote:I don't think they meant anything by "best of luck" , it was just a greeting like "have fun" or "good luck". Your poults look great and you'll enjoy them! I wouldn't read anything into it other than happy encouragement.

    Thank you.

    Most of the people that I know, myself included, always say , "Good luck" and leave off the "you're gonna need it."

    This is my first adventure into raising turkeys and we are enjoying them. My husband actually prefers them over chickens.

    Black Spanish and Narraganset hen. I think she is a hen but it is hard to tell that young.
