    I've got turkey poults hatching readily but the turkey starter crumbs still haven't arrived. What can I use as emergency feed?
    All help and suggestions appreciated :)

    I would say for the short time pick up some regular chick starter. The will be ok with it.

    You can give them some boiled egg yolk as well =)

    X2, I raise mine on chick starter, so they should be fine with it.

    I use chick starter (not starter/grower) for my turkeys and keets. It's only 22% I think but the best I can do here, plus the price is right! My chicks get my flock raiser feed from the start (the same thing all my adult birds get).
