Raising Backyard Turkeys

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Backyard chickens and turkeys after an early snowfall. They were all sent to the processor a few days after this and came back with dressed weights of 29lbs, 23lbs, 21lbs, and 19lbs.

The easiest and fastest way to get your birds to lay eggs, and grow big and meaty,

is Human Interaction along with a proper diet.

Simply talking to the birds and sitting in the pen and petting them a few minutes a day,

will greatly boost their morales and allow for a great tasting bird along with egg

Your turkeys are beautiful! I have one of mine that has swollen cheeks. Can you tell me anything about this?

Laurie Clout says:

Not being rude and I'm not telling you carnt but it's a bad idea to not have chickens with turkey's can catch a disease called black head from chickens x

Music is horrible

Farmer Nate says:

I have only raised heritage turkeys. How long do BB take to finish out? Is it 3 months?

ThePaleoAgrarianist says:

It was interesting to me that you chose broad-breasted white turkeys, many backyard turkey farmers prefer older breeds.

Moby Dave says:

I'm amazed at how many eggs you got from the small amounts of hens u have and even in the short days of winter.

Great egg production! What do you feed them? We only have chickens now, and are trying to get their egg production up! (we mix our own feed) Great video- would like to do turkey next year!
