Keeping Turkeys - A Beginner's Guide to Keeping Turkeys As Pets at Home


A lot of people are only familiar with turkeys as the food they partake during Thanksgiving dinners held every single year. What most people do not know is that these turkeys can also be considered as pets at home. Keeping turkeys as pets at home like most people do with dogs and cats can be considered one of the most enjoyable thing.

If you are then interested in keeping turkeys at home to be raised as pets, it is important for you to know that there are two available varieties of turkeys that you can choose to take care of - wild and domestic. First of all, the domestic variety of turkey is the one that are taken care of because they will be sold by turkey farmers to those who are looking to taste some good turkey meat. The most unique thing about these turkeys is that they are not capable of flying even though they have wings to be able to do so. On the other hand, wild turkeys are the ones that are really perfect as house pets. However, a lot of people are actually having second thoughts when it comes to raising these turkeys because of the impression that these "wild" turkeys will actually harm them in a major way. You will be surprised to know that keeping turkeys that are wild in variety are easier to take care of since they are known to be smarter than the domestic ones.

In addition to your knowledge about the two varieties available, it is also very important for you to remember that you should watch the things you will feed your turkeys so that your pets will become stronger and healthier. In relation to this, remember not make your turkeys really fat because they will be like the domestic turkeys that are sold in the market. Lastly, you must remember that to be able to be successful in raising turkeys in your home, you should always give them enough space to run around in. Turkeys are very curious animals. Just make sure that there are no possible hazards for them in the area that you will provide.

When you make your pet turkeys really happy, you will realize that they will give you the same feeling that you give them. Even though they are not considered as a primary choice for pets, you will be surprised by the fact that they can truly light up a household.
