Hey all. I am thinking about raising some turkeys for thanksgiving this year and wanted to ask a few questions about raising them. First off what breed would you recommend? I don't want something that's going to be vicious and try to tear my throat out every time I go into the pen. Second will raccoons kill full grown turkeys? I've had raccoons kill several of my chickens over the years and most of them I've dealt with but I am curious if a full grown coon would attack and kill a full grown tom. Third can turkeys be kept in close proximity to chickens without them trying to kill each other? They will be in separate pens but they will be able to constantly look at each other. Fourth what breed is best for eating? Love me some smoked turkey. (They are kind of tough to keep lit though) I think that's all the questions I have for the moment. Let me know what you guys think.
