New to turkeys. What is poult? Is there a list somewhere that I can read to learn all the turkey talk. I recently bought 3 Burbon Red Turkeys and bought 2 traditional brown turkeys but forgot what you call the brown ones (with some white color feathers too) They are all young. The 3 BR are a little older than the brown ones. The brown ones are about 12 weeks old. The BR are about 16 weeks old Do turkeys have to be kept separate from chickens? If they do, can they be next door to each other? How old do turkey hens? have to be before they start laying eggs? Do they lay in the winter? Thanks for helping out a turkey dummy.
