    I am new to turkeys, our first poults will be arriving in April. The big issue at this point is where they will be housed. I have been trying to find local information on whether we have blackhead in our area or not. That will determine how far they are housed from the chickens, and whether or not they can free range. However, I have found no information at all. I don't even know anyone in our area who has turkeys to ask. Anyone know or know where to find the information?

    You can call your States Agricultural Offices, they should be able to direct you to the correct department to answer that question for you.
