This may be a very strange/dumb question but it's something I can't seem to locate. I am trying to find out what kind of housing turkeys live in. I would like to get a couple of turkeys in the future. I do have chickens and get a real kick out of them. For now they are pets. I don't have it in me yet to cull any at this point. I have 2 chicken coops and each small flock is let out each day to free range. I also have a horse and 3 dogs and they all get a long extremely well.
If I get a couple of turkeys I want to know if I make a big, ok, extra large chicken coop for them? I have to be realistic here, these birds are not small. If I do, do they roost like chickens and nest like chickens? I'm picturing all this on a much larger scale of course. I know my husband will find this post and be thankful no one can see who he is out of embarrassment. Hey, I tried looking up information on turkeys and didn't find any, nothing helpful of course. Not even on this board did I find out anything about turkeys housing.
Here is another question. Can you have more then one male turkey? Do you have to have a bunch of hens? Roosters don't get along when they are close together. You need a lot of hens for each roosters. Does it work the same for turkeys?
That's all the questions I have for now. I'm sure I will be back for more info in the future. Thanks
