Looking for advice -- thanks in advance.
The backstory: a stray domestic turkey has been in our suburban N. California neighborhood for the past week. It looks like a bourbon red. Nobody's claimed her, and she's becoming a nuisance for us. We've got chickens and a lot of raised beds, and so the turkey is attracted to our yard, eating the food that the chickens kick out of their run, and (unfortunately) eating our growing peppers/squash/potatoes/etc. in our raised beds. We need to figure out a way to keep the turkey from eating our crops.
One possibility we're considering is just capturing and keeping the turkey (the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" option). We'd want to build a combined coop/run to keep the turkey -- having her just out in the backyard is not an option, since there's no feasible way to keep her out of the raised beds. We're not really looking to get additional turkeys -- the five chickens that we have are already enough livestock for us.
Understandably, most of the plans that I see for keeping turkeys is for keeping many many turkeys. I'm wondering how much space we'd need to dedicate if we just wanted to have the one.
