I have no experience with turkeys but am going to be buying 3 2mth old poults - Bourbon Red, Narrangasetts or Royal Palms soon. Logic with 3 is that 2 will be for breeding (hopefully!), one for eating. I've dealt with chickens in the past, but this is not my farm. It's completely organic - no pesticides or antibiotics. It currently has 30 free range chickens with a huge coop at night. There are no roosters. There is a huge hoophouse where we raise tomatoes peppers & herbs where the 25 guineas live. I'll be adding 25 "easter egg" mix pullets once they are old enough to the coop. I'll also be adding 5 silkie pullets to the mix as they're going to hopefully help raise the guinea eggs. Advice on this? lol. IF we have to separate we can but it would be easier to put the turkey poults in with the chickens. The coop is honestly huge. I would prefer to get a heritage turkey that isn't that personable as I have a problem with turning them into pets. We're hatching out the guineas to be food but it's not as difficult as they're not very friendly.
