Hi all, I wanted to give an update. It's been nearly a week since I changed the food and today was a notable change. I will combine to monitor.
As for freezer camp, our intention when we got him was for Thanksgiving. After we brought him home we learned he was still too young. Frankly, I don't know if I can go through with it. Ideally I would like to become self-sustaining to some extent. But this is all a different story...
For anytime who is interested, here I'd the link to PDF with recommended diet. http://www.hybridturkeys.com/en/Hybrid%20Resources/~/media/Files/Hybrid/Hybrid%20Library/Management/Aggressive%20Behaviour%20in%20Turkeys%20-%20web1.ashx
Hi, I have the same problem. I raised my turkey from the moment he hatched as he was disabled. Now he's strong and happy. He keeps biting me. Not just a peck but he holds on and shakes his head with my skin or fingers in his beak. I don't know what to do as I love his so much, I've been told to tap him on the head, use a stick etc. But I don't want to hurt him. I'm at my wits end with it. Coming out the coop with bleeding hands every day.
He is with chickens, do you think a female turkey would make it better or worse? Or spending some time with other turkeys?
What food did you use Luvmyducks777 please? I'll try anything!!
Thanks in advance
