    I'm very new to this whole thing, have raised chickens for a long time. But just got our first pair of turkeys! They should start laying this spring but I do have questions....lots...Lol. Do I need to build a nesting box? Why is my Turkeys "wattle? Thing" blueish? Is that normal? How well do turkey hens sit? Thanks in Advance!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I don't know much about Turkeys, so can't be of much help. I suggest posting in the Turkeys section for some good answers: Turkeys

    I hope you can find answers to your questions![​IMG]
