    I am thinking about trying to raise turkeys. I am doing research now. Does anyone have a suggestion of a good book?

    In my opinion, Storey's Turkey book is geared more toward large flock/commercial operations. Lots about beak trimming, immunizations, and artificial insemmination, not so much about behavior and raising with other poultry. Might want to look at a copy if you can, before buying - I didn't find it as useful as the others in the Storey series.
