It's that time again for us to talk about our Turkey plans for 2014. Laying season has come upon some of us already and for others, laying season will be here in a few months to many months down the line. Let's talk about our turkey plans for 2014. A few things we can discuss could be. 1. Are you prepared for Turkey season for 2014? 2. When do your hens start laying eggs? 3. What breeds do you plan on raising for 2014? 4. What is your current Tom/Hen Ratio? 5. How many poults do you plan on hatching? 6. Did you order any poults from other hatcheries? If so, what hatchery, what breed and how many are you expecting? 7. Are you ordering turkey eggs from someone? If so, how many? 8. Will you be using an incubator to hatch your turkey eggs? 9. Do you want your hens to go broody so that they can hatch eggs? 10. Will you be selling eggs and/or poults? 11. What are your feed plans for 2014? Anyone trying fermented feed for their flock? 12. Do you have your housing ready for your poults and turkeys? 13. How many turkeys will you be processing for your freezer for 2014? 14. What did you do this year that you want to do different next year (2014)? PLEASE feel free to post ANYTHING you want about your turkeys, to include posting pics of those cute poults and those handsome and beautiful turkeys. Our discussion is not limited to the above topics. Especially for those who need help with hatching, poult problems, etc. No question is a dumb question, so don't be afraid to ask anything. We are all here to learn and we can learn from each other. Regardless if you keep your turkeys for pets or for food. It doesn't matter. Your problem and experience with your eggs, incubating, hatching, brooding, raising poults/adults can help the next person. We are all turkey lovers and there are A LOT of experienced turkey people on this thread who are more than willing to help. So let's talk turkey!
