We keep a small flock of Narragansett turkeys and raise the poults to eat or to sell as live turkeys occasionally. We usually just keep a few over the winter for breeding and hatch the eggs in April to raise turkeys for our own use. They spend the summer until fall outside, but winter in our barn. The indoor picture was taken 2/9/13 of two of our three turkeys, but the outside picture is a few years old – when we had some other breeds too.
I would consider hatching more eggs on request but it’s easier to just raise them for ourselves. WE are considering buying some Broad Breasted turkeys this year too. We like eating turkey all year round but if we know long enough ahead of time, we are willing to sell a couple. It’s often hard to predict how many you’ll actually have by butchering time. So many things seem to go wrong for baby turkeys!
