Turkey chick breed ID, newbie tips

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am just getting into turkeys and picked up two today. They appear to be less than a week old, and the shop proprietor had no idea what breeds they were. Any help IDing these guys would be greatly appreciated, as well as some tips for starting out.
Still reading through all the threads here, lots to learn and apply!
Chick #1 aka "skittles"

Chick #2 aka "MM"

Looks like bronze.

Feed them 26 to 28 percent game bird starter. Poults need more protein than chicks.

Welcome to turkeys they are a blast.

Some updated pics, now just over 3 weeks old. I can't beleive how fast these guys are growing. I got a handful of Cornish cross and leghorns at the same time, it's amazing the spread in sizes.
#1 (escaped the brooder today, found it perched up on some shelves in the garage)

#2

#3 (a different breed?)
