So we are going to an animal swap meet this weekend and I was planning on looking for some young turkeys to raise for thanksgiving. Unfortunately I know very little about turkeys, including what sort to look for or what age. So the questions are: What sort of turkey would be best for a thanksgiving dinner? Would male or female be better? How old should I look for so they are ready by then? We already have chickens and have cared for peafowl and ducks. Do turkey need some sort of special accommodation or can they be housed with the chickens? I will of course look into this on my own as well.
