    I am in the midst of my first time raising heritage breed turkeys. My question: Is a 11'x13' hoop style tractor big enough to accomidate 7 heritage breed turkeys until November? They are almost 4 weeks old currently. And also, do they need a roost?

    It sounds fine to me. They definitely like to roost, so would add.

    They raise them in a lot less square foot per bird than that in commercial mass production.
