My turkey pen is gone. The wind tore it apart. I had the 2 crippled girls separated and their pen also blew away. Not more than 3mins into the storm I was back out in that wicked wind and rain holding my turkey pen from blowing away or breaking apart worse - after I scooped the two crippled girls up and put them in my shed. Well, after about 5mins of standing in the pouring rain, I started making the trips back and forth, carrying turkeys to the shed. After 6 trips and 10 birds, they were in and I then went on to get some medicated water made for them (antibiotics - I am sure I'm going to have some sick turkeys). I had to set up heat lamps for them and a separate cage for the crippled girls since the black girls can't leave them alone.
I have no idea what I am going to do to house the turkeys now. They can't stay loose in my big shed (it's the one with my breeding cages and soon to be 3 - 3x5' breeding / wintering pens}.
Oh, and I lost 150lbs of feed because the lazy a** that unloaded the feed didn't dump it in the barrels. The water runs under the door of the shed and inside.
I have an idea, but not sure how good it is. Anyone have any no climb fence (4-5') or flight netting, anything, they want to sell cheap? I need some 2x4's, too. Will trade birds for building materials. :(
ETA: Wing, I have a few Dumor chick (game bird starter) starter bags if you want them.
