    I've been using the calculations provided by Meyer Hatchery on their website for BBW. They don't provide feed calculations for heritage breeds though. Meyer Hatchery

    Holy Turkey! My Royal Palm gobbler and hen only go through a few pounds a week. They are free range, but I sure didn't realize the heritage breeds ate so much more!
