Our Turkey Timeline
At John Howe Turkeys we love to share how we care for our turkeys throughout the year. Our turkey timeline shows you what we are doing during each stage of a turkeys growth development.
Our Turkeys Timelin
14 – 16 weeks
Our turkeys are now very adventurous, roaming further around our grassy paddocks and meadows. Our turkeys are free to roam the farm throughout day light with access to food and clean water and return to the warmth of our barns every evening, safe away from the elements. The turkeys are now reaching full maturity, and as you can see their distinctive features are now more recognisable and allow us to establish between and a stag and hen turkey. As we are family farm, our little farmers love to help let our turkeys out and enjoy the turkeys following us when walking our dogs.
25 – 26 weeks
We are now getting to the busiest time of our season, and well on track for making sure all our customers recieve the best tradtional, slow grown free-range turkey possible. We follow rigirous cleaning schedules, and ensure we are well equipped to start this busy season. We also start advertising for our Christmas and thanksgiving orders and for those who live locally, and pass our farm you will soon see our Wicker Turkeys on display in our field!
