I joined a while back when I purchased a duckling who unfortunately died of unknown causes, since then, I haven't been on here. Anyway, recently I decided that it would be awesome to have a free range turkey (hopefully a tom) in my backyard. I live on a third of an acre in a suburban neighborhood with a pretty big backyard (relatively) that is fenced in with 6 foot wood fences and one side has what I think is a four foot chainlink fence. So he should have plenty of room as an adult. I think I shouldn't have too much trouble keeping a turkey with clipped wings in my yard though. Anyway, what I was wondering is if you guys think i can raise a single poult successfully. I have done lots of googling but haven't found too much information specifically addressing hand raising a single poult. Also, do you think a heritage bronze with clipped wings will get out of my yard, if not, I'd probably be better off with a broad breasted bird. If you think I need to stick to BB's for their lack of agility, I wouldn't have a problem harvesting the bird if he gets too fat.
