Turkey feed

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got these cuties, along with a duckling, today and the feed store didn't have any organic starter for them. So, now I have no idea what to feed them. Can the duck and turkeys eat the same food. I realize that turkeys are supposed to have 28% protein. Would that be okay for the duck or will they have to be separated? Starter suggestions, please please please

That feed should be fine for the ducks as long as it is not medicated feed.  Most turkey gamebird starter is not medicated.

 

I still recommend separating the ducks from the turkey poults simply because the turkeys will do better in a dry environment which is not what the environment is going to be with ducklings in the same brooder.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.
