Good day! Tell me, please, the weight for a 10-day turkey 106 grams is this normal or should it be more? (Helena)
Hello. Indicator of normal development and growth of turkey poults is their mass. At the same time, they grow very quickly and in just the first week they double their weight. For example, if at one day old the chick was only 50 grams, then already at 10 days it should have about 125 g. After two weeks, this figure doubles.
However, we should not forget that this indicator is different for all breeds. This figure is suitable for kids of bronze breed. So that you can be calm - everything is all right with you. Keep track of the size of the chicks and beyond. At the age of one month they should weigh more than 400 g, in 50 days - 850, in three months - 2.5 or more kilograms. If the discrepancy from the norm is within 50-60 grams, you can not worry.
For verification, we invite you to see the table. If suddenly in the future you have a similar problem, then simply increase the daily diet of chicks. It is best to choose for a set of cereal bran, whole grains, corn and protein foods (reverse, cottage cheese). Do not forget about yeast, it is simply an indispensable ingredient for growing poultry. And do not forget that babies should run a lot on the grass, as they grow more intensively.Table of norms of the mass of the week
