Raising Day Old Turkeys

I want to raise them again, but more of a free-range, rather than cooped, and not just day-old turkeys, aka meat turkey.

When we talked about getting turkeys to raise everyone told us that they die easily in the first week or so.

Raising day old turkeys isn’t much different than raising chicks.

Turkey poults grow rapidly, and will need a larger brooder after a few weeks – they should never be overcrowded.

If you are already raising Coturnix quail then you already have feed for your turkeys on hand. In fact, our quail feed label says “wild game/turkey starter”. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Turkeys will forage. They, like chickens, like treats too. They just really like food when it comes down to it.
