Tom Turkeys

These tom turkeys are now almost full grown. They are 14.5 weeks of age - and are about two and a half weeks away from going to market (at 17 weeks of age).

Each of them now weighs about 12 kg. Collectively, the birds in this barn eat about three tonnes of food every day! That's a lot of food. To keep up with the turkeys, a truck brings a new load of feed to the farm every four or five days.
