Mine was a serious question, what should you feed turkeys on?


Any poultry mash, although if memory serves me turkeys do have another essential amino acid. Or maybe that's something else.

When they are young we buy a special turkey grower feed, then let them roam for the last couple months or so. A varied, wild diet lends a better flavor I think.

turkeys


Any livestock feed supplier will have turkey pellets, or coarse powder to make mash - including everything that turkeys actually require. If space and predators permit, letting them forage for themselves as well will (as Mac says) give a better flavour and texture.

Thank you for your answers, it is interesting to see that they can live outside and find enough to feed on out there.

They would have to in the wild. Access to grass, bugs and leaves will have them rooting about.
Obviously it doesn't work as well if you happen to live in a council apartment in Stroud...
