    I have been thinking about how I am going to house my almost 2 month old turkey poult when he gets older, and I was thinking about making him a large "turkey tractor" out in the back yard. Anyone else ever done this?

    many people have, they are sometimes much like chicken tractors, or much more elaborate depending on what you are trying to accomplish. For larger ones, people seam to use some form of hoop house frame done over with wire and a tarp to cover. for smaller ones, they often have a hut at one end and covered run at the other. usually all on one level, they don't seam to get the 2 floor approach as well as chickens.

    A.T. Hagen has turkey tractors. I remember seeing a picture of them somewhere on here before...
