I've got 4 BR's that are three weeks old. They are in a brooder with a heat lamp at about 85 degrees. I can tell they are bored and restless, they keep trying to get out, and bash their little heads on the screen I have covering the top. I'm afraid they will hurt themselves. The problem is I have read and heard so much conflicting advice, I don't know if I can let them outside or not. First I hear they should not be on the ground for 6 months (grass & dirt) because there is something in the dirt that could harm them and worms carry blackhead. I'm also told they can't mingle with the chickens until they are full grown for much the same reason. Then I see people with pictures of the young turkeys on the grass and chickens standing around near them. What is the real truth here? I can't keep 4 turkeys in my pantry for 6 months. I've begun converting part of a building to house them,( it has a cement floor), then later I will put a door in the wall and give them an outdoor run. Can the experts here tell me at what age they let the turkeys out on the grass, mingle with the chickens, etc? Thanks!
