    i know this is chicken behavior and egg laying, but im going to ask about pea's and turkeys. i have read that peas and especially turkeys will lay wherever they feel like it, but i was going to try my luck and make nest areas or boxes for them and hope they would use them. has anyone had any luck? and if so, what are the measurements of your nest boxes for each? or what did you use that you had for them? what i mean is i used spare 5 gallon buckets for nests for my chickens and they work well.
