Thanks for the help. My first batch of Freedom Rangers are in the freezer thanks to all of the advice from BYC and I would like to get a small flock of turkeys started. ` I have started my search and it looks like the only poults available are White Holland and Midget Whites for a July 12 Hatch Date. What sizes can a realistically expect for Thanksgiving on an 18 week turkey. We dont like anything huge but usually get a 15 pound bird. They will be raised on pasture in tractors and I would like to use about 22% protein. Would this be appropriate all the way through? I plan on butchering half and maintaining the rest of the flock for breeding purposes. Any input or advice would be welcome. Are their any other breed recomendations.
