    I am looking to raise some turkeys myself and was wondering what breed of turkey will lay eggs and breed true so I can raise them year after year without buying from a hatchery?

    1. Whats a good breed of turkey that you can collect eggs from and hatch out yourself?
    2. How many eggs a week does it lay?
    3. Can you feed turkeys chicken feed?
    4. How long does it take for turkey eggs to incubate and what the avg temp for incubating turkey eggs?
