    How much space do you think they will need when they're grown?

    Not sure but at least a 20x20 pen or larger . A place to roost but not to high .My turkeys seem to like to stay out side after about six weeks ,they chose a apple tree for the summer.

    Glad I found this thread. I have 14 turkeys in the bator right now. 10 of which are chocolates. My pen is 22' by 40' and I asked on several threads if it was enough and never got a reply. Just goes to show you that old threads can be of a great deal of use later on. ;)
