NOT MY photo !! But this is what the Bourbons look like grown ( TOM )
I am raising Bourbon turkey poults for the first time ever right now.I got them because they are heritage turkeys and need to be kept going. They are the sweetest birds and LOVE my husband and I.
They are going to be gorgeous, but not for dinner, just our first three to start breeding of a small flock. Next are Royal Palms for thier beauty. They hatch in August and I have a pair coming. CAN'T WAIT !
These babies are alot of fun and goofy as all get out. We just love them. Spent 1200 bucks building a BARN/Coop with individual cages and perches.....three to a cage right now because they are only 8 inches tall right now. LOL
I also have Guinea keets and Brown Leghorn chics in thier own cages. Then I have my FAVORITE chickens on earth my Buff Orpingtons in thier own coop. I have fallen in love with my birds. We also run a horse rescue and have 3 of our own horses. I will be breeding the Bourbons and everything else this coming year !
