Getting Started in the Turkey House Business

Postby BPowell » Wed Mar 11, 2015 8:52 pm

I'm wanting to put up a set of turkey houses and just wondering if a good living can be made in the turkey house business? What's the average income? How much do they cost to put up? Any info would be great.

Hi BPowell, and welcome to the Forum.
I'm afraid you may not get the answers you're looking for on here, as this is mainly a hobby forum and nearly all of the active members keep chickens, ducks or quail rather than turkeys. I haven't heard of any members involved in commercial Turkey keeping.
But we shall be interested to hear how you get on with your venture, do keep posting as your project gets underway!
You might get more informed advice on Practical Poultry Forum, register at

And try posting in the Housing section, I suggest. There is a section for Other Poultry, but it's quite a way down the menu. Good luck.

Another forum worth trying is www.accidentalsmallholder.net where you will find plenty of people breeding turkeys for market BPowell. I'm sure that's a good place for help as well.
