Moving turkeys outside?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Would it be ok to move two week old turkeys to a unheated shed with their ecoglow heater? The shed has a concrete floor(I will put shavings down) and is secure from predators. 

They are outgrowing their current box (3x5)which is in my dining room.  There's 14 poults.  If it's too soon to go outside I'll just separate them into two boxes. 

Thanks for the help!

I have never used a heat plate, if they all can get under it to stay warm enough they should be okay. I don't know how the temperature is managed under a plate, with a heat lamp I would be looking for about 95 degrees during the second week.
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.

I have a few chicks and turkeys out in a section of the coop, they are two weeks old, I have a heat element to keep them warm when it is cold at night. Some times when it get warm during the day, I turn it off so they start to get use it. The section where they are is blocked against drafts so the temp stays constant.

Here they are.
