The turkeys have been around for a year and a half. The Tom was a heritage breed bourbon red, and the hen was a heritage breed sweet grass. I got them with the thinking they would breed and give me baby turkeys so I wouldn't have to buy them in the spring. Well for 2 springs now, no baby turkeys, I don't know if it was because they were different breeds or what the problem was. I was getting turkey eggs for a while, then she stopped. And they are wrecking havoc on my poor chickens, so off they go.
I also sent 4 older chickens along, they just were not producing.
All my animals have the high life here on the farm, the chickens and turkeys, have a huge 1/3 acre pasture with grass and trees. They have a coop that is open all the time, they can and go as the please. They got fed and fresh water every day. They got day old bread at least once a week. Veggie scraps. Scratch as a treat every day. Stuff to climb on and in. They got freshly pulled weeds every day. So you can see they had a good life. They were also raised with no meds and hormones.
Poor Tom keeps sticking his head through the top of the cage.
I feel bad about the chickens, they had names. If your gonna name your farm animals name them after a meal, it helps. One of these chickens name was Kentucky Fried, my son named her.
