Turkeys - Tips Turkey Owners Should Know Before Buying More
Turkeys are marvelous animals. They are known for providing us with
delicious Thanksgiving dinners, but they make for great pets as well.
Whatever your reason is for thinking about rearing turkeys, there are
some things that you need to know first before doing so.
Turkeys are very curios birds. They continuously poke their heads
around in practically anything they can poke it into. It's cute at

turkeys, as it takes time for them to figure out their locations. You
can scatter these feeders and water spots all over their coop to
ensure that they stumble into one.
Rearing turkeys are a joy. They might not be the easiest animals to
rear, but they do have huge rewards, especially when Thanksgiving
comes along. Until then, have fun raising your turkeys!
