Turkey Trouble

by Sharon
(Ontario, Canada)

I have begun to get a few wild turkey visitors in my yard. So far they hang around under the feeders for the other birds but I am sure they must not be getting enough to eat. I don't really want to feed them but don't like to see them starve. Any suggestions? If I decide to feed them would they eat oats and cracked corn? I live on a farm and have access to that feed. I don't want to give them the black oil sunflower they are scratching for in my gardens

Those turkeys may well be hungry, with the winter weather most of the country is experiencing.
They would be happy to eat oats and cracked corn that you sprinkle on the ground. I would put it far away from your bird feeders, so they don't chase away the other birds. They could rule supreme if allowed.
