    I want a maximum of 5 poults (bourbon reds or sweetgrass). I live in Texas but don't want to deal with the hassle of hatching. Ideal sells 10 min.

    A lot of places will allow you to get just a few in with chickens (for warmth during shipping). Other options are to get older ones so they don't need the heat for shipping, or check local feed stores, etc... If they sell chicks, poults, etc, you may be able to get a small order that will be shipped with a larger group of birds. Some of them do say that you have to get at least 6. Or advertise saying that you want some, maybe somebody local will have some to sell?

    Put an ad in craigslist in your area and ask people to go in on an order with you. I have done that before with chickens and I was amazed at the responses I got. Collect the money and put in your order [​IMG]

    Try Cackle Hatchery in Missouri. They do not have a minimum and will ship with chicks too.

    Quote:That's what I did. You can order as few turkeys as you like and fill the rest of the order with cheap chicks.

    The feed stores should have turkey poults sometime this month or next .
