when can a young turkey be given scratch as a treat? can they have mealworms? they are pets and heritage red breasted turkeys
I am guessing you are talking about Bourbon Red turkeys since there is no such variety as a Red Breasted turkey.

I never give any of my turkeys mealworms or scratch.

I give all my birds a little treat of mealworms and scratch. I usually wait until poults or other birds are 2- 4 weeks old and have received chick grit prior to giving anything other than starter feed. I usually start with dried mealworms only and then add scratch grains once they’re outside. As others have said, treats should be no more than 10% of their diet
