    Good morning everyone!! I am in the planning phase of starting my Meat Bird business. I have 35 acres of land in Alamosa County, Colorado. I want to free range turkeys and provide them for the local community. No matter how many books I read on chickens, it is not the same as communicating with someone who is doing it right now. So here are my questions:

    1. I want to start of small, so how many turkeys do you suggest?

    2. I want to use 2 acres for my birds. It will be fenced in and have possibly 2 large coops big enough for me to walk into. I would like to have a garden planted inside the fenced area specifically for theturkeys. What are your thoughts?

    3. Which type of turkey do you suggest are the best for meat?

    Thank you for your time and hope you all have a blessed day!
