Super birds Review by Rebecca

I've purchased Broad-breasted turkeys (both bronze and white) turkeys from RK two years running, though I don't plan to buy any this year (but I didn't plan to buy them last spring either).

the Pros:

If you're looking for meat, I've never had any die of flip-over, and all gain weight quite well.

If you're looking for pets, get a non-BB turkey. These turkeys make excellent pets and flock-guardians. Our first tom took on a dog that was more than 100lbs to help the flock, yet was never remotely aggressive with my children (even the little ones or the autistic child who was always getting in his business ). so far, all of the hens think they're lap birds and love sitting on people and getting pets. They learn very quickly what expectations are and what certain behaviors mean (ie: when treats are coming!), are super affectionate, have beautiful feathers, and sparkling personalities.

Broad-breasted hens lay enormous eggs that will blow your minds. They taste more like cheese than eggs. Best eggs ever. Better than I had even dreamed an egg could possibly taste. BB hens also lay much sooner and more often than most other turkey breeds. All three of my hens were laying at 6mos.

The cons:

Broad-breasted turkeys are exceedingly prone to diseases and other various ailments, especially ones due to gaining so much weight so quickly. In general, they're prone to sinus infections, severe leg problems, bumblefoot, flipover (sudden heart attack), and even just dying in their sleep. Otherwise healthy appearing birds occasionally just die inexplicably.

If you want them as pets, expect heartache in spades but a very loving, memorable relationship while it lasts. They're very much like short-lived dogs.

These birds will also eat....and eat.... and eat.

why are the bronze turkeys higher in store than on line . they are 6.97 at the store

Can these turkeys be ordered online? I'm wanting some now, not in the spring, and it states that they can be factory shipped and that it may take up to 4 weeks for delivery, but how is it that you order them?
I have called the store nearby (their phone customer service was absolutely terrible) and they said that turkeys wouldn't be available in store until spring, so is there anyway I can order some sooner online?
