Raising Turkey Meat - Simple
And Easy Steps To Raising Turkeys On Your Own
Turkeys are great meat; it's lean, has
a lot of great antioxidants, and natural vitamins and nutrients and
can be even better if you are raising turkeys meat on your own.
It can be very simple and easy in raising turkeys. First of all,
start your turkey production with good healthy stock concerning your
turkey babies. You can raise them from the egg yourself in an
incubator, or purchase good healthy stock from many of the turkey
farms. Make sure to watch out for diarrhea, crooked legs at about
four weeks, and that they don't get too cold.
When it comes to raising turkeys you are going to want to give them
heat lamps so the turkeys don't get too cold. When turkeys get cold,
they cuddle up together and actually sit on top of one another,
resulting in a pile up of turkey, with the bottom being smothered to
death. Of course it does matter how many turkeys you are raising at
a time, you should always try to raise at least 5 as one or two may
pass away and three can be a flock together.
You also need to decide whether you're growing organic turkey or
other types. Once you've made that decision, you can make decisions
on deciding exactly what food to feed your turkeys. Remember in
order to have organic turkeys you need to feed organic food, and
stay away from processed turkey food and medications.

diarrhea in by using acidophilus in the water.

there's a good chance they are lacking in particular vitamins and
nutrients, you can get a commercial mix for the water from your feed
store, or you can try feeding different types of organic foods to
increase vitamin and nutrient content of their feet. Some have used
alfalfa and had this problem solved and there may be other types of
organic feed you can use, look into organic turkey food on the
