My baby turkey is peeping a lot is this normal it seems to be healthy I got it today it has all feathers but on its head so maybe some one who is good with turkeys know how old it is I will post a pic if it later. This is my first time with a really young one I have two others that I got when they were older my north eastern wild turkey when she was four she is 5 1/2 now. I got my Spanish black When she was 7 months and she is a little under a year old now. How do you sex a turkey? I heard if its a meat turkey you half to at some point butcher them because they get so heavy they cant walk. But I heard the females don,t do that is that true I hope so Because then I hope its a female. It is a B.B. Bronze turkey about 5 weeks old Is this the kind that you have to eat. Thanks for the info.
