In the Brooder
- Feb 16, 2012
We currenly have chickens for eggs, & are most likey going to do some for meat next year in movable pens, following our cows.. I know the chickens need about 4 sq ft per bird. Now my question, a neighbor built & is selling a 4x12' movable pen 4' tall. Which chickens dont need it that tall so its just added weight to move, but it would be good for turkey (I assume). He is only asking $ 50, it was built this spring of PT wood frame with 1" chicken wire, my guess is the materials to build an new one will be more than he is asking for it. The other question is how many turkey will it hold, figuring on mature bird this time next year for butchering.
