You might find the following information useful as well (raising/common diseases/etc.), don't let the heritage turkey title throw you off all turks have similar requirements.
What kind are you getting? Jenn
Jenn, they posted the question in the breeds section and mentioned BBW's and BBB's. Sorry for not mentioning that in my post.
5 giant whites and 10 broadbrested bronze
You do realize these are not going to do well as pets? Our males didn't make it past 6 months old and their legs gave out. Our female BBB made it about 2 years and her legs gave out. They were all free range and had lots of exercise. It is very sad to watch them grow so fast. I will share some pics of our wilds and BBB hen that I have.
Here is a broad breasted next to a wild turkey the same age.

How old is your bronze there Cuda? I just want to hug him! He's so big all fanned out!
