    I have a fenced in area just over 5000 sf. Is that enough for 15-16 heritage turkeys?

    My area is going to be 7500 sq ft and I don't plan on putting more than 4 turkeys in it...

    But is that what you decided to do or is that what is recommended by the ones in the know.?

    It s what I decided, I've heard that you need about 500 square feet per bird but they seem awfully big for that. Of course I want to free range mine.
