    What is their source of protein? 4 kg at 9mo is unacceptable (unless you are raising nothing but Royal Palm hens or midget Midgets). Are they getting any commercial poultry feed?

    Might skim through this: http://albc-usa.etapwss.com/images/uploads/docs/ALBCturkey-4.pdf

    Even if regular turkey feed is unavailable, chicken feed will do in a pinch. Crushed hard boiled eggs are a good source of protein.
