    I got 6 babies and I was suppose to get a cute playhouse with electricty, which will take 5 guys and a borrowed truck 45 minutes away to get, so hubby says maybe not. We have a huge trailer with high wooden sides, huge latched door on end so if I cover the top and put roost in would it work for turkeys to live in. yes they will have a run too the 6ft high chain linked yard with netting on top.

    yes I know they are like bionic pooping machines.. the door swings wide open so it will be easy to rake out. thanks

    You may want to add a small cover enclosure, or something with a roof to keep rain off them.
