I went to a poultry show yesterday and entered a raffle for a breeding pair of royal palm turkeys... and I won! I was really shocked and unprepared. So, I brought the 5 month old pair home and this morning I released them on the property (2.5 acres, mostly wooded) with the rest of the free range flock (chickens, ducks and geese) and they started wandering all over the place. I had to track them down several times before I finally realized they aren't going to be like all my other birds. My other birds have all stayed really close in the beginning and still have never even been close to the property lines. I figured this pair would be the same but they acted like they had no sense of territory or even concern about where they were headed. Is this typical of turkeys? Am I going to have to take it really slow with these guys? Do turkeys generally have the sense to stay with the flock or stay close to home? I wont keep them if I have to pen them up. Any advise on free ranging turkeys?
