i think the record is 8 beards. turkeys are freaks. double spurs, mulitble beards, color phase, bearded hens just freaks.

i think that the georgia state record tom had 3 beards, if i remember right. We have a mangement area down here in Florida that is known for its bearded osceola hens. hunters get quite a few out of there every year.
