At what age do turkey poults start roosting at night? I have six week old poults who have recently taken to sleeping in a nesting box rather than on the ground. Should I block off the nesting box to encourage them to roost or will nature tell them to roost at the right time? These poults are very, very, very wild poults and we have not let them out of the tractor they are in yet for fear that the first time we do let them out, they will head for the hills and never be seen again. That is okay with us if that happens but I'd like for them to be old enough to have a chance at surviving. So at what age can turkey poults survive in the wild by themselves? Thanks!
