I'm planning on getting some turkeys to raise for meat. Now I was thinking of the white broadbreasted turkey. Now here are my questions. I want to keep some as meat and raise some for eggs, the hatchery say they won't reproduce. Which one should I get that I can use as meat and have a couple of hens and tom to raise eggs tor reproduce more. If I have to get two types that's okay, they will have their own coop and run. I was thinking of getting about 30 birds. I have people interested in buying a bird once raised and processed. I have a great processor in my area. How long do I raise them before they can be processed? When do turkeys start laying?
