There are some people who value the eggs. They are said to have high nutritional value. Current prices seem to be in the $3/ dozen area.
I'm just starting them, we'll see. I am always eat them. I try not to raise anything that can't be used in some way. Trees that I plant provide fruit, nuts or firewood, animals provide some sort of food. Only exception is my dog. She's purely companionship since I'm alone most of the time.
I already have people asking if I'm going to have turkey this year. Now to get some to hatch!
That figures, since the man who was selling the eggs I bought years ago was Asian. Heh, I should have been selling my eggs instead of hatching them. Those little buggers were pretty prolific as I recall, and I probably wasn`t doing things to the best practices.
Smart to always look for ways to use what you raise/grow. Companionship is important too, so the dog is maybe most valuable. Priceless?
I had turkeys off and on, just for pets though. Need to keep a low profile now so don`t want to risk having a lot of cool things I might have to get rid of. Any particular breed of turkey you prefer as a meat bird?
