I will probably be acquiring a pair of turkeys within the next couple weeks from a neighbor. A slate tom and I’m not sure what the hen is. They will have to be housed with my chickens temporarily until I can get them a coop of their own built. Right now the only feed ration they get is cracked corn. My hens eat 16% layer. Is it a bad idea for them to immediately go from corn to layer? They aren’t in the best shape right now and I can tell they need a better diet. But quick changes aren’t always the best thing.
