Dragoturkey breeding is my greatest passion. I spent my life studying Dragoturkeys, tracking them, observing them, trying to tame them, mount them and most of all love them.
After many years of hard work, I still believe that the potential of the Dragoturkeys as mounts has not yet been completely exploited.
I wrote in this book all my impressions and recommendations for Dragoturkey breeding to remain a passion so that future generations will enjoy their mounts for many long years.

Dragoturkeys are fast creatures that can usually be found in mountainous areas.
They eat vegetables and seeds.
They usually aren't very bright. But beware! They're not as stupid as Iop! They can live in groups, help and protect each other. And they can even think before acting which makes them more intelligent than most modern-day adventurers.
During my peregrinations, I only came across three species of wild Dragoturkeys: Ginger Dragoturkeys, Almond Dragoturkeys, and the rarest and most dangerous ones the Golden Dragoturkeys.

Here is an interesting fact about wild Dragoturkeys: they can live together no matter their color, but when it comes to mating they categorically refuse to mate with Dragoturkey of another color when in the wild.

In general, capturing Dragoturkeys in a delicate mission since they are naturally aggressive.
Most of the time, you have to go through a hunting phase to weaken them before you can hope to capture them.
However, wild Dragoturkeys evolved through the generations and became extremely quick and agile. So much so that it's almost impossible to capture them.
Nowadays, you must be equipped with a good net if you wish to capture a wild Dragoturkey. But overall, you will have to hypnotise or distract its attention to be able to tame it, just about long enough to capture it.

Page 7[edit]

If you want to hypnotise a wild Dragoturkey or tame it for a moment before capturing it, you need to cast a special spell on it at the right time.
Just a few breeders know this spell and they usually only teach it to their faithful disciples.
However, an old hunter lost in the mountains passs on his knowledge teaching this spell to worthy adventurers. It's thanks to him that I managed to capture my first Dragoturkeys.
Once you've learnt this spell, you must cast it on the Dragoturkey you want to capture and quickly weaken it giving it a thrashing. Then, all you have to do is to capture it in a net. And here you go!

Page 8[edit]

Once you've captured you wild Dragoturkey, you can breed it in order to have it mating with another Dragoturkey.
But before, you must find a paddock.
For the poorest of adventurer, there are public paddocks in cities and villages specialized in breeding, where you can breed you Dragoturkey at a lower cost. But beware as public paddocks are renowned for their insalubrity and their overpopulation which are often a source of problems and slows down the growth of the mounts that are bred there.

Page 9[edit]

Wealthy breeders will generally prefer to invest in building their own paddock. This way they can control the Dragoturkeys that will approach theirs and organize the paddock according to what they want to do with their Dragorutkeys.
Breeders, who have their own paddock, like to use various appliances to have them do the most unrewarding and repetitive tasks directly related to Dragoturkey breeding.
So, breeders use these machines to increase the agressiveness, maturity, energy or even the serenity of their mounts while they're away.

Page 10[edit]

These items are usually made by the best do-it-yourselfers capable of combing various resources to make surprising machines.
Wealthy breeders buy the machines made of the rarest resources as they are usually much more solid and efficient than others built with cheap resources or salvaged materials.
You must take good care of your Dragoturkey if you want it to grow quickly. Careful breeders take some time off to go visit their Dragoturkeys and to interact with them making them happy. Dragoturkeys are very faithful to their masters and they just can't grow properly if their master isn't paying enough attention to them or isn't affective enough with them.

A Dragoturkey must be healthy to grow up. And to be healty, a Dragoturkey has to have it aggressiveness, serenity, stamina and love balanced.
Keep in mind that Dragoturkeys are originally wild animals and that they keep a strong instinct. Don't try to completely domesticate them if you want to keep them healthy.
That's why a good breeder will pay close attention to the balance of his Dragoturkey preserving both its stamina and aggressiveness while keeping it serene and in love for it to remain sociable.

Page 12[edit]

Dragoturkeys whose aggressiveness balances with its serenity are healthy and can grow properly.
Some famous Dragoturkey breeders declare than an aggressive mount can't fall in love but can improve its stamina.
And that a mount that is too serene can't increase its stamina, but can fall in love.
Healthiest mounts are therefore the ones whose aggressiveness and serenity are balances. These mounts usually grow fast, are in love, have stamina and mate easily which is quite important for the breeders who want to succeed in this trade.

Any breeder will try to have his Dragoturkey mate to get richer or to improve his Dragoturkeys through the crossbreedings and selections.
Onlt fully grown and mature Dragoturkeys can mate. Plus, the only ones to be fertile enough are those who experienced life.
Dragoturkeys can be considered mature when their owners mount them, though this does not mean that they are fertile.
Well, their owner must spend a fair amount of time with them to make them progress, evolve and become fertile. A good breeder knows when his mount is fertile or not but this won't be explained in this book.

Page 14[edit]

May you wish to have further information on the fertility of Dragoturkeys, just have a look through the following reference book: _"Fertile Dragoturkey: my daily fight"_, but this book seems to be the victim of its own success and is sold out.
Be careful, wild Dragoturkeys you capture are generally all mature and fertile, which comes in quite handy. But remember that they are wild and they can't stand to be in captivity for too long.
That's the reason why wild Dragoturkeys tend to escape once they've done their first mating in captivity.
Put yourself in their shoe, a mating in captivity is not even close to a mating in the wild when you're in harmony with nature, among orchids, streams and singing Piwis.

Page 15[edit]

Before mating, all the Dragoturkeys must be in love. That's why it's important to stimulate your Dragoturkey for it to be in love enough to mate.
Dragoturkey mating is generally an intense and hectic part of their lives. Dragoturkeys are passionate creatures and for them, mating is one of the only means to express their unbounded love.
For the mating to be a success, both Dragoturkeys must have a lot of stamina, or else the mating will be an awful failure. A good reproductive Dragoturkey is a Dragoturkey with stamina.
Once the mating is over, the Dragoturkey couple is often very tired and can even be completely exhausted. Before they can mate again, they will need to rest for a long time to recover their strength.

Only old experimented breeders know the exact length of the pregnancy period.
This pregnancy period is sometime unpredictable and seems to depends on the type of Dragoturkey that has been fertilized.
Some breeders say that Dragoturkeys can sometimes lay many eggs after one single mating. But it still needs to be proved.
Generally, once the egg is laid, a young Dragoturkey immediately hatches out.

Page 17[edit]

The mating of a mount is often justified by the will of discovering new types of Dragoturkeys. Indeed, Dragoturkeys regularly undergo mutations, at almost every new generation.
Careful breeders pay great attention to choose the right Dragoturkeys that will mate with theirs. They act like parents who are about to marry their children.
Dragoturkeys differ form each other by their appearance, character and efficiency.
That's why breeders keep in crossbreeding different types of Dragoturkeys. Indeed, they can get extremely rare Dragoturkeys with the most unexpected assets.

Page 18[edit]

A Dragoturkey will inherit the physical features of its blood parents and ancestors.
That's why you'll need to go back several generations up the family tree to determine what are going to be the physical features inherited.
Studying the family tree and trying crossbreeds will enable the breeders to determine more or less precisely the type of Dragoturkey that they'll obtain after a crossbreed.
But one thing is sure. Blood parents of a Dragoturkey are more likely to pass on their own physical features than distant ancestors.

Page 19[edit]

Page 20[edit]

A Dragoturkey can be mounted only when it is full grown and mature.
.Everytime you'll try to mount it, your Dragoturkey will get tired. Dragoturkeys are creatures with a lot of stamina but they'll get tired if you don't let them rest enough.
To make you Dragoturkeys gain energy again, you can feed them but you especially need to let them rest either in a public shed or in a private paddock.
After a while, Dragoturkeys have more and more stamina and you can move faster and faster on long distances. But be careful, an exhausted Dragoturkey won't let you mount it nor move at a decent speed.

Page 21[edit]

Once tamed, Dragoturkeys are reckless creatures.
They won't fight with their master, but they'll do everything they can to protect him, help him escape or approach the enemy.
The more they'll support their master when he fights, the more they'll become efficient.
