    I am wondering how much layer ration a turkey needs to eat in one day? I just need to know a number to see how many I can afford to get right now.

    We have 11 breeding birds and they're getting close to the bottom of 30kgs (66lbs) of feed I made for them about two weeks ago. So I would say +/- 200 grams/bird/day (1/3-1/2lb). They're currently inside for the winter, with no ability to forage, so come summer time I would expect their feed consumption to drop a bit.
