    Hello,
    I'm a new member here looking for additional information to help us understand and learn more on raising turkeys for meat.

    We will be getting them soon and we need to prepare properly.

    What have you found to work the best as a coop? What advice can you give about raising turkeys that may be helpful?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about turkeys (never had any), but definitely post on our Turkey section in Other BackYard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our turkey experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It's usually quicker just to put "Turkey thread," in the search pop. It should pop up quickly
