How young you want? there are still turkey poults to be found. Murry McMurry sells broad breasted varietys through June, and others through August. I"m sure there are others.

i bought some last year in the middle of july. this year because i need a lot more, they are coming in two weeks.

last year's were 14-24 pounds. i'm shooting for 13-30 pounds this year.

i do plan on taking some in for slaughter in october to make sure i get smaller birds that some folks want. the rest will go the monday before thanksgiving.

after june-july, most poults go to the commercial growers.

I find it silly that you can't HUNT for turkey's around thanksgiving, out of season.
