    So, I have a question about how to get my turkeys to gain weight. I have been showing turkeys at the fair for two years, and this will be the third, and every year, as much as I feed my bird, it's never heavy enough, I have been feeding only meat-bird crumbles, but this year I have started feeding them cracked corn along with the crumbles. So I was wondering if there is any other ways I can help them gain weight? I am looking for them to be 31 lbs. by September 12th, and they are about half a pound now, and 1 week old. Thank you for all the help.
