I got the 17 gallon party tub in black. Something like this. http://www.kmart.com/party-tub-with-rope-handles-17-gallon-red/p-005W050144110001P?sLevel=0&redirectType=SKIP_LEVEL I hope my turkeys like this. I do have some old tires I can use. Maybe I will try both.

ok thanks everyone!
This is what I will be trying for the turkeys' nests. Need to get some chips and bring it to the turkeys. Do turkeys need separate nests or do they share like chickens?
That would mean a drive to lebanon and not sure I can fit it in my busy schedule.... I am scared you know that! I wish I had free range room! I dont and I already have stink from what I have. but I want some, do you think I should just get a handful and try them first? and keep them with the layers or something?

Sally , just get the 6 that you have to buy at TSC, and feeding them ferment really cuts down on the mess and smell...all TSC will have the meaties, never been to one that didn't.
I start mine out in the barn from day 1, they get a heat lamp but very few use it, meaties seem to give off a lot of heat from their bodies..
omg Eli that image is so far from you its hilarious!!
