    I have at least two Narragansett and two Bourbon Red tom turkeys for sale. Buy one, buy 'em all. Bid is for ONE bird.

    They were hatched June 15, bought from Stromberg hatchery.

    They are very tame and enjoy strutting and showing off for people. Excellent barnyard pets, and very beautiful birds. The feathers are very popular for crafts, etc. Healthy and good foragers.

    They will not have enough meat on their bones to make a decent Christmas dinner, but will be well-grown and nicely filled-out for Easter.

    I got them to use for breeding stock next year, and ended up with many more toms than hens.

    I can't represent that they are to breed standard, as I'm no expert. To my eye, the Narries look like they are close to the standard, while the BR's maybe not. But they are growing well and should be good for production.
