What wild turkeys eat. They will also eat small vertebrates. As many of us in the United States prepare to eat turkey lets take a look at what wild turkeys eat. Grain and seeds include corn wheat and spilled birdseed.
So how does their diet change in the winter. Turkeys found in agricultural regions take advantage of available grains and crops. In addition they willingly include in their diet small seeds of grasses juicy berries of small shrubs rhizomes all kinds of insects small toads frogs lizards.
The list might surprise you and their dietary choices may help us figure out what the future holds for wild turkeys. This is normally going to be lizards. To be safe do not mix wild fruits with other fruits when feeding your turkeys.
During this time our turkeys have eaten needles from our white pine trees to supplement their diets. In an agricultural environment the commercial feed is extensively used as Turkeys are a major source of meat. In fact I have several white pines where the turkeys have eaten almost all of the needles from the bottom halves of these trees.
Opportunistic there simply means that wild turkeys have a very flexible diet. Their instincts can tell them which fruit is safe or not. At spring green-up turkeys typically forage on leftover nuts tender plant shoots grass leaves and buds.
So to impact even one third of the states turkey flock would require 500000 pounds of feed PER WEEK and all this feed would have to be delivered to locations where the turkeys could utilize it. Turkey are not known to be picky eaters and will eat almost anything. Turkeys tend to eat a lot of insects in the wild.
