    Does anybody have pics or a source with pics of turkeys growth week by week? A chart wiith expected height and weight would be useful too.
    I am hatching mixed heritage eggs for the first time sourced locally from a fellow BYC member and want to get a better idea of what to expect.

    Here is one decent article (or so)..

    Part of the issue with charts is it only counts if those qualities have been selected for in the individual line.

    Anticipate harvest around 28-30 weeks of age... and don't forget that using the proper 30% protein starter will impact growth rate and size in addition to overall health.

    I'm getting Bourbon Reds this year! :wee

    Happy hatching! :jumpy:jumpy
