    has anybody on here hatched turkeys? If so I have some questions I would like to hatch some turkeys and let them free on our property have you done this and do they stick around or take off what age do you release them,season? do you have to have shelter for them or will they roost in trees? I'm new to this I am planning on hatching out my first set of chicks (backyard mix) and after that I would like to do turkeys pheasant or quail for our property. Any info is appreciated TIA
