Here be Turkey Lane

Our turkey poults are almost 1 month old and growing everyday. We bought bronze breasted poults from the local feed store. They are large but still baby chicks in the brain. But they keep up with our chickens and go after all the bugs. They are smart enough to stick together and return to the coop at dusk. They come when called and can fly a little. I think they are all females. We will try to buy a straight run of 5 more turkeys to get a male or Tom. We are hoping to breed them. A free range turkey is a happy turkey. Even if they do not breed successfully, they will be great to have for dinner.
