The young turkeys should be turned out in the fields just as*soon as the dew is off the graBS and should be allowed to remain out until dark. If they are driven Into the poultry house about dark and given a feed of grain or dry corn meal, wet and squeezed dry, they will, in a few days, return of their own accord. Of course they must be brought In every night because if they are al- Excellent Type of Turkey. lowed to roost away from the poulry house they are likely to be destroyed by animals.
