We just found a nest of 14 turkeys eggs ( and I'm not mean the guy clearing our trees said he wouldn't see them and run over them ) so now we have turkeys! BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!! So how do you raise turkeys can they eat un medicated chick starter? We have a whole bag from when we planned to get ducks. Do they need a coop like chickens, how much space do they need, what are turkeys mainly used for meat or eggs? ( Also not on topic but this is my very first post I'm using my mother's account. ) How long does is take turkey eggs to hatch we have no idea how old the eggs are and how can you tell when they are ready to hatch or can you?
