    my turleys have taken to sleeping on the gate post, not really a problem for me but all 6 are crammed on their and as they grow theres not gonna be enough room!

    i have inside a HUUUUUUUGE christmas tree that has to go outside shortly (once ive acclimitised it to the cold outside whether)
    could i perhaps put that in the turkey enclosure for them to roost in or will it be too prickly on their feet?

    Boy, I highly doubt it would be "too prickly" -- birds seem pretty much immune to that sort of thing. I'm sure they would love to have it to shelter in.

    Just make certain there are no foreign objects in it like icicles and stuff. You alos have two choices, lay it on the ground or install a T-post and tie the tree to the post. Your Turkeys should like it either way.
