    Hi All:

    I'm seriously considering raising a couple turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner next year.
    We have 9 chickens and are loving the eggs. We built a really nice coop and run for the girls.
    I'm wondering how elaborate a turkey pen needs to be. Do they need a coop as well?
    Does anyone have pics of their turkey pens they can post?

    Thanks,
    Shrader

    I keep my two in a chicken tractor I built a while ago they seem fine in it. They were made with 2 of the cattle panel fence you get at tractor supply for about $16.00 each.
    If I was at home and not at work I could send you the photos.
    I have to look the link up I added here maybe do a search for my past post and you can see them .
    It takes a little less then a day to make really about 5 hours.
    I had them free range but the wife thought they were too messy so she had me pen them up.
    I liked them out and about they are very curious and come close watching what you do.
    Ok here it is;
