    I have 2 turkeys in with my chicks. They were hatched on 3/3, so they are 17 days old now. The starter feed I have the chicks on is 20%. Is theis sufficient for the turkeys, or should I seperate them and put them on a higher protien feed?

    what kind of turkeys(breed) are they. if meat type id keep them on what you got them on, they get fat real fast anyway and should do good on it,

    if other type breed you may want to put them on flock raiser crumble or all on turkey starter..

    I am pretty sure they are Naragansettes. They were in an assortment and no breed specifications, but looking at baby pics on the hatchery page, they look like the Naragansettes.
