    What is the best type of feeder and waterer? Which ones are best for chicks, and which ones are best for adults? I'm only getting two turkeys and keeping them in a small coop(only at night).

    The best feeders and waterers are those that your birds can't get debris into and that they can easily access.

    How's that for an answer?[​IMG]

    The regular chick feeders and waterers work just fine when they are little, but they quickly outgrow them. One thing I've noticed is that my Turkeys LOVE to play in the water when it's hot out (just make sure they can't drown).... Here is what I use for the adults;

    love the feeder, I made one quite the same, I had to cut and recut holes at the bottom till I got it so feed would flow out, then I also had to raise the bucket and set it on an overturned dish inside an oilpan so enough could flow out to feed 13 birds. I love mine. So do they.
    Just had to comment on your spelling on Sandy Eggo, LOVE it, funny.
