Feeding Turkeys

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am have chickens and am about to add 2 turkeys to the existing coop with 19 chickens. This will be a first for me. My question is do you try to feed them separately or let them eat chicken food? 

Would appreciate any suggestions. 

Thanks!

It depends on what age the turkeys are.  If they are adults they can do fine on a quality 16% protein feed.  They should have supplemental greens also.

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

In wonderful Wyoming.
