I am getting a pair of turkey chicks in a few weeks as a part of a homesteading combo, the only problem is: I know nothing about turkeys. I am planning on making my own chicken feed and I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for turkey feed so that I could make that as well.

...the only problem is: I know nothing about turkeys. Not trying to hurt your feelings, but if you are that new to turkeys you would really be better off to buy commercial starter until you have more experience. North Carolina produces a lot of turkeys. Gamebird starter should be easy to find. Poults need high levels of quality protein along with the right minerals in the right amounts.

I'm also new to turkeys and wanted to make my own feed too. I did end up buying a commercial feed, but the options that are available to me are not up to my standards I guess.

I am very picky about what I eat and am also picky about what my animals eat. I don't want additives and soy meal and all the other things the farm industry does saying it's okay. I want a more organic, holistic and natural approach. So, I can feel the OP'ers pain.

I searched high and low for the feed I chose, and it's not the easiest to get, since I have to order it mail order and there is no one nearby that sells it.

So, I too, would like to make my own feed if anyone knows that these right minerals and amounts are!

Just to let you know that the post that you replied to is from May of 2013 and the OP hasn't been on BYC for over a year.
