I have recently debated on expanding my little homes operation of 20 chickens and some quail. I have gone back and forth between turkey's and goats, and have finally landed on the the next logical move would be turkeys. I have been doing plenty of research, and have narrowed my breed down to a few. The thing that is lacking is the info on raising a small group. I am thinking 6 max, and if that size is sustainable as far as the hens raising new birds and maintaining a flock of that size. So I am going to assume that it 6 is a good number for me. A few immediate questions: 1. I currently put my chickens out to pasture daily, on our 1.5 acre plot. Will I be able to treat the turkey's the same as the chickens? Example: let them out to free range in the morning, and then close them up at night. 2. I would really like to see everyone's turkey pen set up. What all is needed? enclosed? size? etc... 3. I make sure my chickens keep feed. During the summer months they fend for themselves and go through little feed, but during these colder months they can go through some feed. Are turkey's as reliant during the winter? Is it even economical to keep turkeys? (I will use the turkeys for meat) Right now that is the main questions that I have, and I am sure I will have more to come. All input will be greatly appreciated!
