Place your order now.  Robert  will only grow what is pre ordered.

Robert's almost Dunn Egg and Poultry

 How long does it take for wild turkey eggs to hatch?

28 days

One egg is laid daily until a clutch averaging 9 to 11 eggs is completed. Incubation takes 28 days, and all poults hatch within a 24-hour period. Depending on weather, the brood hen and poults leave the nest within 24 hours of hatching.
Peak hatching period is from about May 20 to June 10. . .

Y . A turkey hen lays one clutch of eggs per year, these clutches can as small as four to as large as 17 eggs per nest (that's a big clutch and that's cool fact #1)!
The hen lays only one egg each day, so if she lays 14 eggs it takes two full weeks to lay the entire clutch . .

 Egg laying is mainly in March and April with peak hatching occurring in early May. Mating activities starts in March and nesting activity is high near the end of April.

With the incubation period of 28 days, most poults are present in the last week of May or early June.

George for Robert

Photo Update.  The property is cleaned up.  The coop is done. Solar power of the grid is working well.  Water flows down freely from the natural spring up the mountainside.

Egg production is on the way.

Thank you San Carlos.  

Tomorrow we head to Hermosillo to get more Rhode Island Red Hens and some turkey poults.  

poult. (pōlt) A young fowl, especially a young turkey. [Middle English pult, young fowl, young chicken, short for polet, from Old French poulet, diminutive of poule, polle, hen; see poulard.

I realize it doesn't sound serious BUT who would I get to butcher and get bird oven ready? A middleman of sorts or turkey plucker. We have harvested many animals for the table in WY. but I think I'm the champ at ripping skin and remaining with a skinless and dry and tough bird! Wild are dry at best but I can probably ruin domestic as well. Thanks, Ron

I'll order a turkey if Robert promises to keep the turkey feet and give me a bird with no pin feathers.

No price has been determined 

The birds will be 16 -18 pounds and fully dressed unless you want to dress it yourself.

I guess I would turn the question around. 

How much do you think an organic / free range bird like this should or would sell for?

It the first time out of the chute for Robert and it's his livelihood.

Please tell us what you think the bird would be worth?

G for Robert

US prices 2018 . .
