I'm thinking about getting some turkeys, but I would like to know if they are high maintenance? I bought some ducks last year on a whim, thinking that they would enjoy our large pond, and they have turned out to be the most high maintenance pet we've ever had. Especially when they were ducklings, I had to clean their area every single day, sometimes twice a day, because they poop so much and make such a mess with the water! Baby chicks are a breeze to raise up, in comparison, and taking care of my chickens is like breathing to me=). So how are turkeys?
