    Which incubator is right for me?

    Hey I’m looking for a new incubator but I can’t see what kinds are best. I’d like something that can hatch 100 or so at a time. I hatch turkey and chicken eggs mostly. But I’d like to be ready to hatch anything. What incubators do you think are best?

    Adult turkeys peck at poult when introduced

    At the moment we have a tom and two hens. One of our hens somehow have made a nest outside and it was too late when we discovered it. She had 15 eggs from which 11 hatched.

    Do I have to rest turkey to be ground?

    I just had to dispatch an older BB turkey hen that had become mean to all of the other birds and has been limping around (she was almost 4yo...pretty good life for a BB). Where she's older and I already have 2 whole turkeys and lots of shredded and Turkey soup in the freezer I decided I'm just...

    Found our tom turkey standing in his pen today with his head down (eyes open). He lives with two other ladies, both of which seem fine. Usually the three of them come running when we feed them, but tom was just standing there with his head down the whole time. Tried just putting some food in...

    Turkey keeps flipping on to his back.

    So a couple weeks ago my 4 year old turkey, Brittany, had foam in the corner of his eyes and without any other symptoms the vet recommended just keeping an eye on him. I took him in to the vet when he started stumbling, spinning in a circle and flipped on to his back once, the vet gave him...

    Turkeys and Goats on same pasture

    Hi everyone, I'm new to turkeys and goats but I'm playing around with the idea of having them share pasture. I know housing chickens and turkeys together can come with its own challenges, such as them sharing diseases, especially Histomoniasis/Blackhead. Then I had this idea that perhaps I could...

    Potential brain damage from hypothermia? Please help diagnose this Turkey!

    My bird Meatball is a 4-month-old heritage turkey hen. She's a good size and is very feisty, but this morning she fell off the coop and got stuck in near-freezing mud. We found her likely within two hours (I was not awake when it happened) kicking her legs in a pinwheel unable to get up. We...
