    I am looking to get some turkeys the upcoming 2014 spring and have one last question i cannot find. One is for that is for feeding turkeys: do you just put out as much food as you want for them? or do you have to feed them like dogs where only breakfeast lunch and dinner?

    THe babies need a constant food supply-- they will regulate themselves. My adults in the breeding pens have contant access also.

    We also feed ours as much as they want, 30-33% Game Bird Crumbles and lots of extra stuff whenever we can...grass, watermelons, kitchen scraps...oh and we give them 5-grain scratch just tossed into the pen, which they totally love now that they are bigger. They weren't interested in it much when younger.
