Hi everyone. I'm getting some turkeys in the spring and am loving the idea of a heritage breed, particularly Bourbon Reds. I ordered chickens this past spring from mpc, I loved the fact that I could just get a few. Although I love my birds, and wouldn't trade them for the world, they are not very close at all to the breed standard. Next time I get chickens I will buy from a breeder, not a hatchery. I'm not looking to raise them (or very many, at least ) Nor am I looking to show them, I just love the idea of them looking like they're *supposed to*. I am concerned that if I buy turkeys from a hatchery that they will be "hatchery quality" and not like the big beautiful turkeys that I'm seeing pictures of on heritage websites. What are your experience with hatchery birds? am I being silly? Do you recommend one hatchery over another? Can you recommend anyone who breeds these birds very closely to the standard, and where can I get them? I don't want to get 50 turkeys, but I'm sure that if I got 10-15 I could put some on craigslist or something. I would ideally keep 5 or so for myself and family. thanks in advance for any help and suggestions. gobble gobble!
