    What Breeds of Turkeys do you have ,

    I have a total of 9 Breeds as of now but soon to be up to 11 different breeds of turkeys by mid summer of 2011 .

    Back in late 2006 - and early 2007, I Started out with ; White Royal Palms - Red Bourbon - and Red Bronze , and then in late 2009 / 2010 I end up adding the following breeds to my flock ; Slef Blue /Blue Slate , Standard Bronze , Choclate , White Holland , Golden Narragnetts , Standard Narragnetts Turkeys .

    And this coming spring 2011 ,I will be adding Black Spanish and Rio Grande Turkeys to my Growing Flock of Turkeys .

    I will have a total of 28 Turkeys after I thin out from the 36 that I have now [​IMG]

    Very, very nice looking boys you have there Rearolled. We're down to just breeding stock right now for the winter but I just set my first eggs in the 'bator so that's fixin' to change. We have Bourbons and Midgets and we'll hopefully be getting some Bronzes from Steve this year.

    Lor, the Bronze were mating over the weekend, hopefully it won't be to much longer.

    We have 6 varieties. Numbers I don't know off the top of my head, over a 100 pretty easy. We grew out a new batch of Midgets and Beltsville's last year and are still culling

    White Holland
    Midget White
    Beltsville Small White
    Bourbon Red
    Royal Palm
    Standard Bronze
