Organic Turkey Feed?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
The downfall is the price.
Depending on how long your growing them out prior to processing them, which the breeds your talking about takes about 6 months because the heritage breeds grow slower. You can actually feed them a organic chicken starter from a local feed store much cheaper. If your trying to process at 13 to 14 weeks old, then you will need a turkey starter feed. Not many organic turkey feeds around.
We are in Michigan and we use feed made by Kalmbach.This is the same stuff they use in their organic, just not certified organic.
For our poults we use:
Our starter is $16.99 per 50#
For our breeders we use:
Our layer feed is $13.99 per 50#
We have been breeding Bourbon Reds for 3 years and in May and June hatch around 50 poults a week. We only sell them for $6 each, so we sell out every hatch. We have always had good results with Kalmbach Feeds.
Hope this helps.
