The common names used for the number or type of turkey changes depending on the age or sex of the animal. For example, male turkeys are called toms, female turkeys are called hens, baby turkeys are called poults and a group of turkeys is called a flock.

Turkeys are large birds related to pheasants. They lived almost 10 million years ago.  Some say related to the T-Rex dinosour. Wild turkeys are native to wooded areas of North America. Turkeys are the only breed of poultry native to the Western Hemisphere. They were first domesticated in Mexico and brought to Europe in the 16th century.

Social Benifits

Turkeys are social animals. They enjoy the company of other creatures, including humans. They love having their feathers stroked.  Some say that by keeping a single turkey can prevent and combat the Marek's Disease in poultry.

 

Feeding

A turkey starter diet of between 24% and 28% protein should be fed until 8 weeks of age. Ideally, feed a 28% ration for the first 4 weeks and reduce to 24% for the next 4 weeks. This protein level is reduced to 20%.

Like chickens, turkeys will need grit, so be sure to offer them chick grit when they are about 3 weeks old by sprinkling it in with their food.  As your poults grow you can offer them greens from your garden, they love them and they are good for them. It is also a great way to make friends with your birds too especially if you are not planning to slaughter them.


Prepared feeds should be placed in self-feeding-type hoppers to provide unrestricted access at all times.

Minimum order requirements to ship safely.  Live shipment can only be shipped on hatch day.
