I bought two turkey hens at an auction last Saturday. My god! I had no idea how big meat turkeys are. I thought they were gobblers and so did the auctioneer but when I got them home I realized that they were female. My hope now is that my bronze male will be able to breed with them. Looking forward to spring.

I found no auctioneers know much if anything about turkeys so not surprised they thought the poults were toms :roll:

I have heard this a few time now, so many don't put their turkeys in for auction or buy from auction because of the lack of knowledge
