Will my poults ever put themselves to bed like chickens? I have four six week old poults who have a perfectly good coop to sleep in at night, but they prefer to sleep in a pile on the ground. Do turkeys have the roosting instinct to go to bed at night? Or am I doomed to scooping them up every night and sticking them in their house? They can get in and out of the coop easily, their feed is in there. And they shelter in it during the day if it rains (to be fair, I had to show them how to do that at first too). Just prefer to sleep under the stars.
