    Feed him and give him plenty of water. Enjoy!

    My turkeys require very little care otherwise. Be watchful of any lameness, and be prepared that this bird will most likely not have a long life as a pet because of his genetics. My BB hen has started to break down a bit and I'm trying to nurse her along for a few more weeks before we cull her and the BB tom.
