    Does anybody know of a source for a feed-conversion ratio for turkeys? It seems like I fed my turkeys A LOT of food last fall, but I didn't track it so don't know whether it was excessive or not! Thanks!

    Steve just posted on another thread that it's 5 pounds feed for every 1 pound of bird. I read somewhere that it was 50 pounds to get a Tom to adulthood or processing weight. So there ya go. I'd go with Steve's numbers.
