    I have 13 Broad Breasted white turkeys.
    They are around 15 or 16 weeks old.

    Last night it snowed and is in the 30's right now. Should I be concerned?
    They have a hoop shelter made out of cattle panels and a tarp with chicken wire on one side.

    I was wondering if I should move them to the barn or if they will be okay out there?


    I started out with 13 chicks and still have 13...so wouldn't want to loose any if its too cold.
