    I have six BBW turkeys I am raising for Thanksgiving. They are three months old and hope to butcher them in another six weeks. They are eating me out of house and home. They forage at least 4 hours a day and when in their secure run have access to feed. They have been eating at least 25 pounds a week. How much should turkeys eat? They act like they are starving. I heard stories of turkeys getting so big their heart bursts.

    Thanks for your help.
