I have 6 Bourbon Reds that are about 6 weeks old. They're in a little brooder about (3'x2.5')and looking horribly cramped. I have an unused stall in the barn that I'm thinking of using for their coop. Two of the walls are open at the top from about 5' up to the roof. If I staple chicken wire up to cover all the open areas and keep a couple of heat lamps on for them is it too early to move them? The stall is 10'x10' so it would give them a whole lot more room plus they could have some perches and look out the "window" and I could give them bigger feeders and waterers that would hopefully stay cleaner than the little ones in the brooder that they sit and poop on. Also, I have another 6 Royal Palms that are about a week and a half younger. Can I move them in with the bigger turkeys or should they stay in the brooder awhile longer? Their brooder is the same size but they aren't as big so I don't feel so bad everytime I look at them, lol. Any tips for when and how to combine them? I seriously underestimated how big 12 turkeys are going to be when I was planning their original coop. All of them survived too which I kind of wasn't expecting when I planned their coop. Now I'm thinking of using the barn stall for their permanent housing since it opens up to the pasture where I'd like them to free range for part of the day when they're older. The pasture is surrounded by 3 strands of electric fence that predators would have to get through to get to the barn. Then they'd have to get past the dog, scale the 5' wall and rip off the chicken wire. Or are turkeys as vulnerable as chickens and I should take out a loan and use hardware cloth instead of chicken wire? Or should I just leave them in their nice safe brooder box? Thanks!
