Help! I've been giving them bigger and bigger cardboard boxes as they grow. But now they're in a wardrobe box on my kitchen counter and DH is starting to complain. I want to build them a real brooder. How big do you make it for turkeys? I read the brooder threads and saw cute little brooders made out of rubbermaid boxes but they're waaaay too small for turkey poults. I'm amazed how fast these little suckers have grown in two weeks. At this rate I'm worried I'll have to build them their own bedrooms next month! I need to know how much space you need per poult or some general guidelines specifically for TURKEY brooders. I've got 6 Bourbon Reds that are two weeks old. And I just picked up 6 Royal Palm babies and three chicks. (No I'm not addicted and I wish everybody would quit calling me that . On the other hand if I could find somebody around here with Midget Whites I'd like to try some of those too.) But I can see that I'll be needing a brooder on an ongoing basis so I might as well build something that I can reuse. Can anybody give me some guidance as far as space requirements for poults? Also, what's the best material for their floors, for ease of cleaning? Thanks!
