how big are they?
they look really great - are they reasonably quiet? or do you need to move carefully around them?

We only have 2 adult female turkeys now - have just sold 5 baby turkeys. They all look at each other through the wire netting of the partridge cage and seem to get along fine.

The partridges are about the size of a 2 month old chick at the moment- maybe the same as a large quail? They are about 2.5 months old and nearly full size I think. I have been told they will have their full colours by 4 months old.

They make quite a range of noises - quite unusual. Sometimes quite loud too!
