Turkeys out at 6 weeks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've got 7 bourbon red poults that are completely feathered except for one or two little patches of baby down still on their heads. They've been off the heat for a while now and it's going to be 90 out during the day and in the very high 50's or low 60's at night here. They're 6 weeks old and taller than an 8 qt fortiflex bucket. Their brooder is endlessly filthy and it's 15x15. We have their pen already ready. Is there any reason not to toss these stanky mofos on out of here and into the wide open world?

Toss away, I would have had them out there by now if I had those temperatures.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
