    I've never raised turkeys before, we had a bunch on the farm when I was a little girl now I'm grown up and I'm caring for the farm. I raise show chickens and meat birds. I'm getting bored of showing just chickens I'd like to branch out like my grandfather before me and show and raise many other poultry breeds. And I got started on it when I saw a Norfolk poult in a box at a poultry swap I bought the little guy and I have been in love with him since. If he grows up to his standard I'd love to start showing him and hopefully more. I was planning to get another chick to keep him company and really I would just like some advice on turkey raising [​IMG] my little Norfolk is 2 weeks old now and seems to be doing very good.

    Do you have any pics of the little guy? Not too many Norfolks here in the US.
