    I know quite a bit about chickens and ducks (not everything!), and have done some research for turkeys, but, here we go! I want to get a few turkeys in March, and I have never owned turkeys before. What are some do's and don'ts, and some tips and advice for raising turkeys?

    There is a ton of great info here, just look thru the old posts.

    I'll second that.
    I raise my turkeys on wire for 3-4 months with heritage breeds to prevent the very high young mortality rate.

    Get the right mix of tom and hen unless you want re-runs of WWII.

    And, as they already said, work through the posts in this section. They've been a great help to me from the start and still are.
