We are getting turkeys in the 3rd or 4th week of May. We ordered 15 turkeys, I think that is a lot of turkeys for us to have at once. When someone orders turkeys they have to be sent to you in the mail but not all of them live when they are being sent to you, they might die, so they send a little extra, like 2 or 3 extra so you might get a little more than you ordered.
Of course, when we get turkeys we are going to send some to the butcher and the rest we are going to let have babies so that we can have more turkeys to sell to people but we are going to keep some of the babies. If we are going to name our turkeys we should only name the ones that we are going to keep.
The three kinds that we are getting are the White Holland, that look like this:
The best thing of all is that they can protect the chickens from hawks because they are so big. I am Stepdaughter the Elder and I am so excited about getting the turkeys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
