Hey byc-ers. We are getting turkey poults by the end of this week from Ideal.Anyways these are my questions. Serious answers from REAL turkey raisers only please!!: 1. Turkeys with chickens. I have heard the horror stories about blackheads disease.What causes it? Buying chickens from auctions?I know it comes from chickens,but does it matter what chickens like ones from a hatchery or from a breeder,or from an auction house? 2. Housing requirements: If question from above is correct about spreading blackhead,then what is the designated space requirements per bird,nestbox size,coops(pics would be good).(we have an area earmarked at 100sqft.). 3. Are turkeys stupid: I hear this all the time,that they will drown in the open in a tree,but wait..wild turkeys dont dround,if they did,then we wouldnt have wild turkeys,nor be able to hunt them.They would be on the endangered species list.Whats the truth?? We are getting one tom and three hens that are bronze turkeys.I know about turkey growth.Anyone that is not a novice,your advice is appreciated and dire needed.Anyone that is a novice,or just a turkey-book reader,No offense,but please dont reply.I need professional turkey help from professional turkey growers/breeders. The net doesnt seem to have accurate info.Alot of advice from nay-sayers and wanna bees.I dont want nor need that type of advice.
