Can chickens and turkeys live together?

User Avatar
They can and often do on small farms. Turkeys are fed a different type of feed than chickens but both birds will compete for whatever is available.

Do turkeys lay eggs in winter?

User Avatar
I have two white female turkeys, hatched this spring. They both started laying eggs at the first of January and have each delivered one egg every other day and sometimes two days in a row. I had read that domestic turkeys average 80 eggs per year and I'll be counting our eggs to see how we rate against the average.

Can a turkey kill you?

User Avatar
Not unless you choke on a piece as you are eating. Or get hit by a frozen turkey. A live turkey is not capable of killing a human nor would it even try.

How long can a turkey be frozen before it goes bad?

User Avatar
For best taste, eat your commercially frozen turkey within 6 months. It will be safe to eat for much longer than that since pathogenic bacteria will not grow at proper freezer temperatures - although it may not be as tender and juicy. And this is assuming it has never been defrosted. The quality will also depend on how well the food has been wrapped. Chemical changes - such as rancidity - can also occur over time in the freezer, making the meat inedible. So the turkey could keep well for longer than 6 months or even a year, but there is no point to hanging onto it that long. Alternatively, look on the plastic bag the turkey came in and it will tell you.

Is ground turkey safe to eat?

User Avatar
In general turkey, ground or not, is safe to eat so long as it has been cooked thoroughly. However, turkey is one of the foods that is more likely to be contaminated with salmonella (which causes food poisoning). In August 2011 Cargill recalled 36 million pounds of turkey meat because it contained salmonella.

Which state raises and produces the most turkeys annually?

User Avatar
Minnesota leads the nation by raising an estimated 46 million turkeys in 2012 according to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service. The other states were not even close in turkey production such as North Carolina (36 million), Arkansas (29 million), Missouri (18 million), Virginia (17 million) and Indiana (17 million). Those five states plus Minnesota account for about two-thirds of U.S. turkey production in 2012. Growers are expected to be raised a total of 254 million turkeys in the United States in 2012.
