2017 Poult Order
It’s that time of year already, the annual poult order. To reduce the cost to fellow homesteaders, farmers, and ourselves, we pool our orders with a major breeding stock supplier for commercial white turkeys.
Broad-Breasted White Turkeys grow very fast, too fast to be done with most local feed store chick orders in the spring, if a fresh and never frozen bird is desired for Thanksgiving. As such, we are targeting late June birds. Based on our experience, early July to Thanksgiving aged birds will slaughter 17-25lb for females, and 24-30 for males if fed appropriately.
Estimated feed cost is under $2/lb on retail bagged feed if allowed to pasture.
All birds will be straight run, meaning that their sex will be undetermined. Please note the options for pick-up.
