    Flock Party Opinions

    Hi, I got a flock party waterer, and I prefer it over harris farm's brand. The plastic is thicker and I prefer blue over red. What are your thoughts? APPLIES TO ANY BIRD! :) 🦢🦆🐣🐓🦃

    Tom or hen?

    This is our first time owning turkeys and we aren’t exactly sure how to sex them or when we can. They are 11/12 weeks old! They get big and poofy for a few seconds and hiss?

    Turkeys Coming To Roost

    I have had turkeys and chickens. They were never housed together, or even mingled together (I’m a stickler for biosecurity and npip recommendations)🤓😄👍. One thing that always sucked, was that the turkeys ALMOST NEVER returned to their giant turkey-friendly coop when the sun set—and the random...

    Best crop for chickens, turkeys and ducks.

    I have been looking to plant some crops in a separate run so I can take them off of the run when I need to replant the crops. I need to know which crop is best for a mixed flock. I am currently thinking about oats or alfalfa but would like to hear your opinions, thanks.

    Neighbors Birds

    Hello Everyone! Our neighbor raised 4 turkeys this spring. The males are are very friendly and tame. There are 3 males and 1 female. Will the female be injured in the spring by the males? They are very large, and I'm afraid the might hurt her. She is too skittish to put a saddle on. Any...

    Buying sexed poults?

    Hi! I recently ran across a hatchery site selling sexed turkey poults, Valley of the Moon Turkeys. It is the ONLY site I have seen offering heritage breeds sexed. Is there any other company that does? My difficulty is that I need more hens, not toms, and by the time I am able to identify their...

    Turkeys not eating in summer

    My turkeys haven’t been eating much if at all the past week. They seem perfectly normal but I worry about them not eating. Is this normal? Is there something I can feed them in the summer that they’ll eat?

I am a father and husband with a growing family living in suburban Chicagoland on just a 1/3 acre lot. Backyard chickens is exactly what we have, not...

    Question about dewormers

    So my wife and I have had chickens for a couple years now. This year, we got some turkeys and ducks as well. We let out the ducks once they're nearly full grown and they tend to stay out around the pond and rarely come back into the pen or coop at night, but we do keep them in the pen with the...

    Turkey treats?

    I have 3 broad breasted whites that are on 20% crumble and 12 weeks old. They like romaine lettuce, watermelon, whole oats and BOSS. Any other treats your turkeys like? How much lettuce or greens do you give your turkeys a day? Thank you!!!!!

    9 out of 10!

    9 out of 10 incubated turkey eggs hatched yesterday and today! Just wanted to share my Royal Palm x Bourbon Red and my one Black Spanish x Bourbon Red new turkey chicks. The one that didn't hatch was a side air cell. I put it air cell up and I should have put it air cell on its side.
