    when i'm training my young ones, i have to pick them up every night, put them inside the coop, shut the door and lock them in every night for at least three days, well, thats how long it took to train the last ones to go in on their own, i have to lock them in due to coons, altho we killed the last ones, i know it won't be long before another comes along
    they soon learn where to go to bed down for the night.[​IMG]

    sounds about right. the min .is 4 sq feet per bird. if you go bigger, you lesser the chance of diseases and bickering.

    My son wants to try turkeys next year. We just might. Of course, he wanted to start with 20, I suggested 4! Lol.

    what I do now are the broad breasted for thanksgiving....I am working on getting a pen going for heritage breeds but I am finding that turkeys are a little harder to hatch......Turkeys are very amusing to watch but I would not go with to many at first unless they have their own pen, they are clumsy and step on everyone in their path especially me, imagine bending over to do something and having a 20 pound bird decide to use you as a perch...

    Because I don't like turkey, but I'm convinced that I don't like factory turkey. So I've convinced Fiancee to "order" a "real" turkey. Can you let me know size/cost?

    Danke!
