I'm gonna get 4-6 turkeys for an FFA project and was wondering how big I'd have to make the pen
Are you getting heritage or broad breasted? Do you plan to keep them or butcher them? Recommended space is 3-5 square feet of floor space per adult bird, I prefer to double recommended square foot, especially if you are keeping them long term. Your run or ranging area should be as large as possible. Management can be different depending on whether you are keeping broad breasted varieties or heritage.
Heritage for butchering
Depending on when you plan to butcher the 3-5 square feet should be fine for housing plus a run or range.
