Made it thru the first 24 hours. Was a little scared. Never had turkeys before. Everyone was going on about how dumb they are. I started them like I do my chicks. Took each one out of the box and into the water. I had very little bedding on the floor. Sprinkled the starter food on the floor because they will eat anything. I figure pecking at food on the floor is better than eating corn cobs or paper. I had 3 very weak ones in the box and lost 2. My wife makes a mash out of the starter food and water. They hit that like a pack of wolves. Made sure thay all got to the water and food again. This morning they were all ok. I bought them from Meyer hatcheries. I had a friend that lost most of his birds twice only to find out that thay were coming from far away with not much bedding in the box. He got his from some were else. So far so good.
