Hello, I am a Newbie!
Hi all. I am a newbie and wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I have tons of questions to ask!
I live in WV and own 80 acres with two barns and would truly love to turn this place into my paradise. I hope to eventually have a small fruit orchard, a greenhouse and large vegetable garden and some critters.
My first question for the experts is this: If I want to try my hand at poultry, where do I begin? I would like to raise a few (no more than 10 to begin with) heritage turkeys. I am leaning towards Bourbon Reds but have no clue as to housing, feed, predator protection, etc.
Possibly a stupid question but does info about chickens pertain to turkey as well? I have looked at the WV agriculture dept website and there is info on chicken but not turkey. Any good books and/or websites would be greatly appreciated as well.
I am SO looking forward to learning from y'all! -- Mimi
