    My nephew has a turkey hen that he has raised with his chickens. When he throws out the feed, she shakes briefly before eating the food. Any ideas what this might be?

    What kind of shaking? Like shivering or just shaking out her feathers? If she's like mine, she's probably just excited to see food!

    Can anyone tell me if a red bourbon turkey would be good to use for a market turkey for 4-h?
