    Ok I need some help with pricing poults.
    I have just got the eggs and the news has spread and I have people lining up wanting the extra poults if or when they hatch.
    What is a good fair price?
    Every where I have looked hatcheries and breeders they run around $10.00 and up.
    Thanks

    Hello All,
    I have noticed that there has not been any entries here since 2011 so hope there are people out there that are having success getting and keeping the Wishard Strain Unimproved Bronzes.
    I used to buy them to eat from "Thundering Hooves farm" until they sold their stock. The new company "Blue Valley Meats" now distributes poultry from the Nash farm but I don't know about availability of poults from them. I am going to see if I can get in touch with them since I live here in Washington I could just go pick some up.

    Im also going after the unimproved bronze. I realy enjoyed raising the BBB, but I want to breed my own turkeys. The only place in the U.S. that I have found is Wish poultry.
    Here is the contact information. For information on purchasing unimproved Bronze turkeys, contact Wish Poultry, Box 362, Prairie City, OR 97869, telephone 541-820-3509. Other sources can be found in the ALBC Breeders Directory. Ill be contacting these folks this winter for an early spring order.

    There were some guys in Sumpter and Burns Oregon that took on quite a few of these birds....While we were living in Oregon we were going to get some but never got around to it. Good luck!
