Summary  A band of turkeys poses for the photographer near Sacramento in the early part of the last century. Facts gathered for a U. S. farm survey determined that in order to get started in the poultry business one needed three to five acres of land to build and equip houses and runs, an adequate pump and water supply, and a cottage to live in. Though not as common or profitable as chickens, turkeys were raised in the Sacramento Valley and lived on the stubble left in fields and leftovers from the orchards and vineyards, which cut feed costs considerably.
