Hello! I was debating on getting a few Bourbon Reds this spring and in preparation for the happy event I did what every expectant poultry-mother does: I bought Storey's Guide to Raising Turkeys. They don't really go into great detail about how much room the birds should be given, just a small blurb stating the following: For Heavy varieties, provide 1 square foot of floor space per poult up to 6 weeks of age. From 6 to 12 weeks, increase the floor space to 2 square feet per poult; from 12 weeks to 16 weeks, allow a minimum of 3 square feet. Mixed sexes grown in confinement need 4 square feet for floor space per bird from 16weeks to market. To be clear I give my chickens 4 square foot per bird in their coop so I was struck a bit dumb when reading that Turkeys could apparently be kept like that as well. For housing I was planning on using semi-permanent hoop houses (moving them for 3 seasons and keeping them stationary during winter) and doing the math, if I have an 8x12 structure I could have 24 turkeys (and 16 turkeys in an 8x8)?! It just doesn't seem right to me. Personally I was figuring on keeping 3 hens and a tom in an 8x8 hoop house (only 1 hen and 1 tom would be wintered over), is that appropriate? Thanks for your help!
