The recommendations that I have seen that I believe are high protein turkey gamebird starter from hatch until 6 to 8 weeks of age. A quality turkey gamebird grower after they are 6 to 8 weeks old. I would only feed finisher to turkeys that I am getting ready to process and then only for the last month or two.

At 16 weeks there is no reason that you can't switch to a quality (minimum 16% protein) feed. An all flock type feed would be fine at that point.
