Just wanting to know if anyone in Pennsylvania has non captive heritage turkeys? I have made several attempts at contacting the Pa Game Commission in regards to allowing turkeys to freely live on my property. It is a farm that has some wooded patches, pastures for cattle, and fields for crops. I have at one time seen wild turkeys on one corn field after harvesting it. I have talked to different individuals in the Game Commission and have gotten different answers and have been redirected several times. I have got mixed answers. I was asked if I got the turkeys in Pa. If I got them in Pa, "then it shouldn't be a problem". I purchased them at a local farm store. They got them from a hatchery outside of Pa I assume. But I did purchase them in Pa. I was also told by a different employee of the Commission I need a $25 permit and had to have them in an enclosure if I was going to sell, trade or barter them. I don't plan on making a business out of these turkeys. I would consider on occasion trading fertile eggs or breeding stock to prevent inbreeding. I just want to let them walk around the farm without inhibiting there movements. I hate to place them in an enclosure that would limit there foraging for natural food sources. I have a little time to get answers because they are only a week old but are growing. I am really thinking at this point it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
