ok, long story short a pair of turkeys were given to me. Problem #1 - They free range 100% of the time. I'm worried about this for the winter. The hen managed to hatch 11 turkeys this past July. she raised them free range until they started to wander into the neighbors yards. they were about 6 weeks old. We herded them into a coop and they are now about 13 weeks old. they have been fed an all natural feed that is mixed and sold locally. We think they should be ready for Thanksgiving. We would like to finish them off by free ranging (and an all natural finisher feed). The older birds free range in about 1/4 pasture with pasture fencing. The pasture fencing keeps them in for the most part. the older birds just don't seem to want to fly over and are to big to fit through. I'm not sure how to go about free ranging the young turkeys. they might fit through the pasture fence. will they fly over it? I'm a little freaked out about them disappearing. what if I let them out and then I can't get them back in the coop again? I'd like to free range them during the day and then put them all (incl. the older birds) in a coop at night. The older birds roost on top of the coop at night, I'm worried that the younger birds will join them. I really need some advice. The whole thing is making me nervous, but I think they will sell best if we can say free range. help! P.S. I don't know what breed I'm dealing with. Here's a pic. Maybe you all can help. I think they are more of a heritage breed. but its just a guess.
