My husband and I are closing on 21 acres of woodlot. We plan to build there. I'd like to get turkeys once we move but I want to do my" home work" like I did for my chickens before I purchase birds. I have several questions , I appreciate any and all help. I live in northwestern NY. Which breeds are more cold hardy if there are any? Do some breeds take to confinement better then others if I should windup keeping them in a "run" type situation ( like one similar but larger then my chickens) what are suggested space requirements in a coop per bird as we do have coyotes in the area and these birds WILL be in at night Are certain breeds more friendly? I like the idea of heritage breeds and have been reading up on the time differences for butchering, so thanks for that info I know to keep turkeys from grazing on land where there have been chickens due to Blackhead disease. Are there any other diseases they may be prone too? I know this is asking alot of questions but thanks for any pointers you can share with me . I believe in taking good care of my animals and want to be some what knowledgable before I dive in.
