We wanted to provide information on your baby poults and how orders work. So generally, all orders take 5-7 weeks to process from the time you order. This can fluctuate based on season, higher demand breeds or fowl behavior. We are a farm that takes a wholistic approach to our fowl. We naturally let them be who they are, and express themselves. This is one of the reasons you choose us. See our chick/poult care guide here. Remember turkeys are seasonal layers so we don’t start collecting eggs till March, check fertility then start processing. The season runs from March to October.
First we receive your order, collect enough eggs (based on orders in process, etc) then set to incubate. General incubation is 28-30 days (see here). After hatching, we make sure the baby is off to a good start. If the breed is backordered or in high demand, this time will be longer. When the order is getting ready you will receive an email in advance, giving you time to prepare. Final email will be letting you know how to prepare for delivery or pick-up and will be ready to ship or pickup 1-2 week timeframe.
A friendly reminder, watch this video to better understand how Sugar Feather Farm process orders regarding this fowl.
Feed and Supplement Recommendations:
Want to get your poults off to a good start?, our turkeys are Non-GMO raised. We offer excellent feed specifically for gamebirds and our chick feed is already ground to the perfect texture for their little beaks! We have a grower and adult feed as well.
In addition we recommend using our Oil of Oregano in the water. Gut health is very important to turkeys. Also Oil of Oregano helps prevent blackhead disease in turkeys!
We also have some tips and tricks for success. Thank you again for your order!
Peace – Love – Turkeys
