    I recently got a pair of Narragansett turkeys about a year old. They are used to free ranging and for the present I am keeping them penned up until they are used to their new home. They are rather aloof and sometimes downright skittish. I was wonder what would be a good treat to get them to be a little friendlier. I have chicken and they like everything but turkeys are new to me and dont want to give them the wrong things. So whats everyone use for treats? thanks in advance

    Thanks I'll try some of those. Gave them half a small pumpkin but they were not impressed with it at all.

    Mine aren't big eater of pumpkins either, they like things they can swallow in one gulp, except the watermelon of course. Don't be,surprised if you see big chunks of stuff slowly going down their throats, then them acting like they can't get it down, smaller pieces, they are pigs.
