Eggs and Chickens: Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-17. Farmers used to drive turkeys to market, one person leading the way and another at the rear of the flock waving a stick in each hand to encourage the birds in the rear to keep up. Turkeys are very willing to walk and this is an excellent way to move them to the next field. Turkeys utilize their wedge-shaped bodies when traveling.

Just now started raising a few turkeys as a hobby and as using them for pets/bug eaters. This is a great book so far for a novice like myself. I have enjoyed reading about the history of turkeys, and the various kinds of turkeys (origins, features, history, etc.). It has also educated me on how to build my pen and how to keep the flock safe and healthy. I was doing a few things wrong; I was unsure about others, but this book answered those questions. Would have liked color pics to see the difference in birds but I know that makes a book more expensive to purchase. Also, it is written as if the author is talking to you, not clinical but fun to read.

I bought this for an introduction to Turkeys before I begin to raise them and after reading it helped me decide that I don't want to bother raising them from chicks- I'd rather get them after they are feathered out (@2 months)- so on that front it's given me an good idea what to expect ( I get my turkeys in @2 months) for the price of one chick this is a great book to see if raising turkeys is for you. As with most of the "Storey's" Guides I've found the a big help determine if this is something I'm interested in pursuing. Highly recommended.

Our son wanted this book as reference when raising turkeys for 4-H.
It has proven invaluable for reference regarding coop design & construction, health & diseases, rearing and feeding, harvesting and cleaning, preparing for shows.
This is a MUST HAVE for anyone raising turkeys for food or as a 4H project.

This is a good book and goes into detail about Turkeys and their housing, breeding, feeding and so on. We are going to be starting a hobby farm soon and thought that we'd like to raise some heritage Turkeys as part of our poultry flock. Come to find out, you should keep Turkeys about a football field's length away from chickens or else they can catch terrible diseases. This doesn't fit in with our plans so it was good to find it out now, not after we've already got the birds. I still enjoyed reading the book and now I know a lot more about Turkeys than I did before.
