    I want to get some turkeys this spring.
    What kind of shelter do they need how big does it need to be? They will free range so it is just night time. Or will they be happy roosting in the trees if so do I need to worry about them? what do I need for littleones? temp brooder ect how big does it need to be?

    A.T. Hagan, Thanks for that awesome link. I am getting my first turkeys in the spring. That site is a wealth of information! It should be required reading for any first time turkey farmers!
