From what I have read, turkeys handle cold weather pretty well, and prefer to sit outside as opposed to a warm coop. Now, I have, and will certainly USE if necessary, a warm barn pen or them this winter. BUT, I also have a three sided shelter next to the barn that I am considering for their winter home. I would like to close up the open side with hardware cloth. Shelter is large-ish- probably 20 feet long and 10 feet wide-about 8 foot tall. I will have 12 turkeys going through the winter (Bourbon Red, Standard Bronze and Narrangasset) and I was thinking that a 3 -sided shelter would allow for more airflow obviosuly, and thus less...aroma.. So first, is this sufficient? We are in Iowa, and winter gets really, really cold here. Second, what do I do about the poop in winter? I am assuming it will freeze rock solid for the most part if I use the outside coop, so do I just keep piling on fresh litter until spring? The shelter is on dirt, so deep litter composting is theoretically possible...except can that even work at such low temperatures? I just want to know the healthiest, happiest, least stinky way to get these guys through the winter months-any thoughts are appreciated!
