Hey y'all. I need some input. I have been doing all sorts of research and watched pretty much every turkey related youtube video known to mankind. We have all sorts of other poultry but a turkey would be a first for us. My hubby is dead set on getting a turkey poult this year to raise as a pet. I came across some info that says not to use broad breasted turkeys as pets because they grow too fast for their bodies to handle and won't survive more than a about a year. It was also suggested that only heritage breeds should be considered as pets because the have slower growth rates thus giving them longer lives. Is this true? Would a heritage breed make a better pet? Has anyone here raised a broad breasted turkey that was not intended for consumption? We want a turkey that can live a nice long, happy life doing turkey things on our farm. Most of the feed stores near me only sell broad breasted breeds, but one is going to potentially be ordering some heritage breeds if there is enough interest.
