    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. You might want to post your question in the Turkey section on the index page. If I remember right I think turkeys require a higher protein feed than a chicken. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Turkey poults do require a higher protein feed, so they're usually fed a gamebird starter. The Turkey section on here is great & it has lots of info that really helped us out with our turkeys. Congrats on the poult & good luck [​IMG]

    I feed my geese a game bird starter which is perfect for turkeys.
    Which type of turkey do you have?
