    what does that mean "Average meat Turkey", these are my first turkeys so i know nothing about them.

    i have been a member of this site for almost 4 years and reading it for almost that long too. but not reading the turkey section. I'm trying to find someone who can give me an answer or soe who look like them, but haven't yet.

    and whats a Royal Palm also, as this doesn't have a turkey breeds section on site either.

    A meat turkey Is a broad breasted white (BBW). They are the cornish cross of turkeys.

    Where did you get the turkeys? An individual or farm supply store.

    Most farm store carry Bbb or bbw.

    If you paid 5 to 7 dollars each probably meat bird.

    Royal palm are a heritage breed turkey.
    Heritage breeds are 10 to 15 dollars a poult.

    i got them from a feed store in Calimesa, it seems that almost everywhere i go to buy chickens or birds when i don't know what i'm buying they don't know either. i have to tell them. they were 8.50$ each. at 3 weeks old. there almost 5 weeks now.
