    Anyone know of a hatchery/breeder that sells sexed turkeys? Prefer a heritage breed... I just need a pair.. I dont want to have to buy a bunch if I can help it...

    Meyer hatchery does NOT sell sexed poults. All of their turkeys are straight run minimum of 15.

    It looks like your best option is to purchase young adults after they are old enough to sex.

    Try Craigslist and also the Washington thread in "Where Am I Where Are You"

    Some one who is going to the Poultry Swap in Portland May 5 has turkeys. Try looking in the Oregon swap thread. Maybe you can get some turkeys there.

    Do you want two one year olds, that are male and female? I am coming to canby and could bring a nesting female and a breeding male, bourbon red male and either spanish black, white holland females. All are great, but I almost think three would be better. Two turkeys are a bit lonely, three is better.
