    Hen becoming aggressive

    Hey, so what can I feed my turkeys that is more natural? Is there anything I can add onto the wheat. Wheat is 16% protein and they have access to it all day with oyster shell, grit and corn in the winter time :-)

    Also, just out of interest, what should I be feeding them? They are kelly bronze but will not be used for food but kept long term. As per the breeders we fed grower/finisher then went on to just whole wheat.

    Size of shed for 2 x Turkey

    Hi guys, I have 2 x Kelly bronze turkeys and am getting them a new shed for the winter. I wondered if 6ft x 4ft would be big enough or if a 7ft x 5ft would be better. They will spend quite a bit of time inside when the weather is bad. What do you think?
