I know I"m not betting turkeys for a while since they are out of season, but I want to make sure the turkeys stay directly on my property. what's the best option for that?
I don't know if it would be possible to keep the turkey home - it would probably depend on how big your place is. Training it to stay inside movable netting, plus possibly trimming the tips of wing feathers on one side would be options.
We have a big wire corn crib that I kept my heritage birds in most successfully. They didn't get to wander around outside, but did have a big area with high roosts they could fly to.
Do you have a particular variety in mind?
