I feed my turkeys and guineas Dumor Starter from TSC. After that they go on All Flock like everyone else. My chicks get All Flock right from the start, since the nutritional value is almost identical to Starter/Grower and I try to raise them using broodies anyway. I also start taking the keets and poults outside by ten days to get get grass, bugs, dirt, etc.

From everything i have read turkeys have to have a large amount of protein and i dont wanna do medicated because i would eventualky like to slaughter and eat these. Here is the link for the feed im gonna get... http://www.efowl.com/Organic_Turkey_Starter_Feed_p/4007.htm
. Has anyone ever fed this? Its organic, non-gmo, non-medicated and has 26% protein. I recently got chickens and have been feeding diatomaceous earth (food grade) and ACV (organic, non-pastuerized) and plan to feed these to my turkeys as well. Just wondering if anyone has had any good or bad experiences with this feed? Any downfalls to this feed that you, more experienced, people see to this feed that i dont see? Thank you in advance!
At that price, I will never feed mine that lol. I love my animals but I also have bills to pay. I would feed organic, but not (can't) at $100 more per bag.
I'm wondering why get heritage breeds if you intend to slaughter and eat them (not judgmental, just curious).
