    We have 1 tom and 3 female turkeys at the sanctuary I work for. Here in florida it is beginning to get pretty HOT. Our turkeys have a large building that they can go in and out of and their yard is mostly shaded, but I have still noticed that they seem to be hot.

    I am wondering what I can add to their enclosure to keep them cool, they already seem to enjoy being misted with the hose, but I was wondering what else people are doing to help keep their babies cool.

    Thanks!

    You could try pop bottles filled with ice for them to lay on.
