If I were to overwinter an adult tom or a hen and they ate 100% grain?

Don't put off today what you could put off tomorrow.

Plant lots of winter wheat, kale etc and they will eat it about 50% of the time.

I will be on/off BYC. If we owe you hatching eggs, please forward us the listing information. We are almost caught up on them and do not wish to miss anyone. Poultry are now laying!

Turkeys forage much more than chickens so if you have winter forage available they wont eat much feed.  But if you do feed 100% grain, be prepared to go through about 1 lb of feed per day per bird depending on size.
