    I know the forum is slow this time of year so I thought I would post a few pics of my free rangers.

    This is Mouse the guardian. He is about 9 months old and haven't lost a bird since he was about 6 months. He really protects his flock!

    Thanks, 3 of the RP's are 2 years old but the rest are some that I hatched this year so they are pretty young. I have several more in my barn that I haven't introduced to the outside world yet.

    So I am very interested how you keep them from just flying away? We have 5 acres and my husband and I would love to have our 7 turkeys out freeranging, but worried they would just leave. [​IMG]

    Quote:If you have raised them at your place, they won't leave. If you are worried about it, let 1 out each day then put it up at night, next day let 2 out until you have them all out. I do put them up every evening and my dog sleeps next to the pen. He won't let so much as a coon near. Even if you got the birds as adults and they have been in a coop a few weeks, they will stay.
