    I have 2 turkeys that are 8 weeks olds, they have been out in the barn with an outside pen for a month now. Every night I have to pick them up and put them inside the barn. They won't go in by themselves at night. They perch on the door. I have a night light in the barn for them. They go in the barn during the day. Anybody know how I can get them to go in by themselves?

    8 weeks old are still babies. They'll get it eventually.

    I've got some that are 4 years old and still I have to chase them in every night.
