For healthy growth, it is crucial that turkey poults are provided a full diet of feeder and water as soon as possible after hatching. Though not dissimilar to feeding chickens, in that they require different starter and grower rations as well as a maintenance diet once mature, turkeys, due to their size, require a much higher amount of protein.
Protein Filled Feed
It is for this reason that most other poultry feed would not be sufficient for turkeys, and may even lead to ill health, and therefore that dedicated feed is required, with approximately 20% protein content for grower and finisher rations, more than would be necessary for chickens for example.
Here at Little Peckers, you will find all of the best quality turkey feed available, from starter crumbs through to grower and finisher pellets, all providing the perfect combination of protein, fibre and oils to ensure your poultry thrives.
Egg Layer Pellets
On top of that, we also have in stock other important products such as turkey egg layer pellets, which provide the right level of energy to uphold general health without leading to excessive fat and which contain the essential fatty acids and B-vitamins to help support strong and consistent egg production.
Rearer pellets are also in stock, used for birds from around eight weeks of age. It is often the case that this feed is required for turkeys which have been moved from brooding to finishing accommodation. At this critical stage of growth, one hundred birds will eat around 30 bags of this feed between 8 and 12 weeks of age.
It should be noted that ACS means that the diet mentioned contains coccidiostat. This is introduced to combat any parasites or clinical disease symptoms.
