    I bought six BBbronze poults a couple of weeks ago. I was wondering if any one could tell me some tricks of the trade to groing turkeys. They are all really heathy. I also would like to know the feed conversion for BBbronze.[​IMG]

    You need to feed them a high protein diet 28-30% for the first 4 weeks, then switch them to a broiler ration 18-24% feed them 12hrs a day and hold feed from them for the other 12 hrs much like a Cornish X. This will help slow their growth down and not be risking them of an early death due to health problems from growing so fast.​
