    I had a cage and my neighbor built me another one

    the new cage, they were very heavy to carry up to the barn
    put a tarp over them to keep the wind out and have a heat light in one of them.

    had to put newspaper down in the cages, they didn't like walking on the wire bottom

    I have 2 turkey's sitting on eggs in the barn where my chickens lay eggs
    when they hatched, my husband took the babies and put more eggs under her

    also have 3 gooses sitting on eggs and several chickens
    I think we are going to have too many babies pretty soon

    Those cages look perfect for them.

    They take a day or so to get use to the wire floors but they will, give them perches as well then they will sleep on the perches and not on the floor.

    Looks like you have some Narris and/or bronzes and a couple black spanish in there from what I can see in that pic.
