I have never raised turkeys before, but each year I get calls from folks looking for them the week before Thanksgiving. I have decided to give it a whirl this year and I would like to raise both a heritage breed and some BB Bronze. I see all sorts of postings about these monster birds that people raise. I don't want a monster turkey -- I want something that the average family would be interested in putting on their dinner table. One of the reasons I am looking at two separate breeds is so that I have a smaller bird available and a larger bird available -- plus, I know that some folks will want size and what I like to call 'familiarity' (a bird that is a little closer to what they are used to from the store -- their 'first step' bird toward healthier eating) over the fact that one is a heritage breed, and vice versa. That said...here are my questions for you experienced Turkey raisers out there... 1. What size of bird do you find that your average customer wants? 2. To make sure that my birds are the size you mentioned above, when should the birds be hatched? How much difference in time should there be between the start date of the heritage birds vs. the BB Bronzes? 3. Which heritage breed will provide me with the meatiest breast? 4. I know that the BB Bronze will likely not be able to fly for very long, but will I need to fully enclose their area so that the heritage birds don't fly away? 5. Any other tips or suggestions? Thanks!
