i have 19 chickens (15 RIR, 3 Barred Rocks, and 1 Australorp) not free ranged and this spring i was thinking of getting some back yard turkeys. my biggest question is do they HAVE to be free ranged? i do have coyotes that come around at least once a week, raccoons, cats, and dogs that come around which is why i dont free range my chickens (i have not lost ANY chickens at all). if they have to be free ranged than i cant get them because we have too many predators and if they DONT have to be free ranged what is the MINIMUM space they can have. i was not going to get very many (one tom and 2 or 3 hens) so i was hoping i have enough space for them. also, what is the best breed for eating. ANY advise over ANYTHING would be helpful. Thanks!
