TURKEY POULTS

 

Newly hatched turkeys are called poults.

Immediately upon their arrival from the hatchery the day-old poults are placed in climate controlled barns where they are kept warm and given special care.

Large gas powered brooders are used to ensure the poults are kept warm and additional water and trays of feed are put inside brooder rings for the first few days. This makes it easy for the poults to get all the feed and water they need. This first stage of their life until five or six weeks of age is called brooding.
