Description

We encourage farmers to watch, listen, learn from the behaviors of the turkey. Also, track their growth and feed intake levels.
Housing turkeys
The housing protects turkeys from sun, rain, wind, predators and provides comfort.
In hotter parts of the country, the long axis of the house should run from East to West.
The distance between the two houses should be at least 20 meters and the young stock house should be at least 50 to 100 meters away from the adult house.
The width of the open house should not exceed 9 meters.
The height of the house may vary from 2.6 to 3.3 meters from floor to roof.
An overhang of one meter should be provided to avoid the rain water splash.
The floor of the houses should be cheap, durable, and safe preferably concrete with moisture-proof.
Brooding Foreign Turkey Poults
In turkey, a 0-4 weeks period is called a brooding period. However, in winter brooding period is extended up to 5-6 weeks. As a thumb rule, the turkey young ones need double hover space as compared to chicken. Brooding day-old young ones can be done using infrared bulbs or gas brooders and traditional brooding systems.

Points to be noted during brooding

The floor space requirement for 0-4 weeks is 1.5 sq. ft. per bird.
Starting temperature is 950F followed by a weekly reduction of 50F per week up to 4 weeks of age
Shallow waterers should be used.
The brooder house should be made ready at least two days before the arrival of young ones
The litter material should be spread in a circular manner with a diameter of 2 meters.
To prevent the young ones from wandering away from the source of heat, a fence of at least 1 feet height must be provided
