Does anyone raise Bourbon Red Turkeys? I need tips on raising them.
i only raised 3, but I kept them inside for a long time, weeks, and then they were in a brooder outside until they were fully feathered. I fed them turkey starter for a long time too. mine were born in april, and we're planning on processing them for thanksgiving.
They are considered good foragers, that means that if you free rage them, they can wander further then some other varieties looking for food. Otherwise they are the same as any heritage turkey.
We have raised them for years, they are very curious birds but other than that raise them like any other heritage turkey.
How do you care for them?
...raise them like any other heritage turkey.
You feed them, give them fresh water, provide shelter, make a pen for them or let them free range or both. Have you raised any turkeys before?
The ALBC has educational resources for turkeys. It is a good place to start if knowbody will help you here. http://albc-usa.org/EducationalResources/downloads.html
