Seasonal Birds

Rio Grande Wild Turkey - Texas Native

Young Rio Grande Wild Turkeys are active and easy to raise. They grow fast and can eat your destructive grasshoppers, ticks (including those which carry Lyme Disease) and other insects. They are so colorful, friendly and fun. Every farm needs a flock of Rio Grande Wild Turkeys!
 

Keep your new poults in a safe coop for a while before releasing them to ensure they get used to your place. After a few months they require very little attention and will take care of themselves by hustling for their food.

Rio Grande Turkeys have a short breeding season, and are sold late Spring until supply runs out.

Guinea Fowl

Young Guinea Fowl are known as "keets", and are very active and easy to raise. They grow fast and can eat your destructive grasshoppers, ticks (including those which carry Lyme Disease) and other insects. Guineas are also a great snake deterrent and make a great "alarm system", so everyone needs a flock of guineas! You should keep your new keets in a safe coop for a while before releasing them, to ensure they know where home is. After a couple of months, they require very little attention and will take care of themselves by hustling for their food. 


Guinea Fowl lay eggs during the Spring and Summer so these are the seasons we sell keets.  Adult Guineas are sold all year long.
