If you have ever wanted to raise your own Turkeys, then you can buy your day old turkey chicks for collection on this weekend. This gives you the ultimate amount of time to raise the chicks in time for Christmas. They will need somewhere safe, dry, and will require a heat lamp for 3-5 weeks.
The Turkey chicks are all Bronze Turkeys, broad breasted birds that make the tastiest table birds for the festive table. These birds will reach over ready weights of between 4-6kg. They are “as hatched” which means a mixture of stags and hens. (boys and girls).
At the Small Farm Training Group we have a bulk order with Kelly Bronze Turkeys, this means that whereas normally you have to buy 50+ birds, you can order a buy a minimum of just two – directly from the SFTG. We have several members who are turkey growers and we have put together a factsheet so that you can successfully grow your own Christmas Dinner for 2021.
For those members who would like a little more help, we are hoping to arrange a basic Turkey workshop at the beginning of the summer – if we get enough people who want to know, we will arrange something for you all.
Bookings are closed for this event.
