In prep for getting turkeys, I started here and with Storey (of course!) The recommendation in the book is that you build them a "sun porch" so they don't go out on soil until 8 weeks. On here I find no mention of that and am wondering if it is really necessary (seems like a lot of expense/work for something they will only need for a couple weeks). We plan on heritage and free ranging during the day after brooding. Part of my question is that if we let a hen raise them they would be on soil immediately, what is the difference as long as they are safe from predation? Thanks in advance!
