Successfully raising turkeys on the homestead is quite easy to achieve. However, there are a few things to keep in mind prior to incorporating them onto the property.
Raising turkeys on the homestead may be something you’ve tossed around for quite awhile, but for some reason you haven’t been able to commit to bringing them to the property. Turkeys aren’t small like chickens and they aren’t independent as ducks, but there’s something about having them on the homestead that seems homesteady, and I’m here to tell you that they have been a great addition for us.
There’s many things to consider prior to bringing in turkeys, but the main thing to think about is why do you want to add them to your property. Are you looking to become self-sustaining and raise them for meat purposes or do you simply love the idea of having a pet turkey? Once you distinguish why you’d like to raise them, then you are able to decide on how many to bring to the homestead.
