    If it was warmer out they would be ok but at 38 degrees I would give them 100w bulb just to be safe. Turkeys just tend to be more sensitive than chickens to cold temperatures.

    That is good they are doing good. I hope they continue to do so. I bet they will because they have been doing so. Sometimes it is good thing to be safe than sorry. But I am glad they are doing fine!
