    Hi folks,
    This is my first season with turkeys I have 3 BBW that are 60+ days old and are on chick starter feed! my question is: when do I change their feed and to what type would you all suggest.
    Thx for your input

    Our first season as well. We were told to keep them on it until 6 months, but our are bourbon reds and slates. I can't always find the starter feed so we feed starter/grower, layer, corn and scratch grains all mixed together and they seem to be doing just fine. They are growing like weeds. They also are allowed to wander a fenced portion of our property, perhaps a 1/2 an acre at most.

    Thx for the info...I won't have these birds much longer though, they have about 2 months before they get processed for thanksgiving dinner
