I would like rundowns of your predator prevention and personal experiences with lossing turkeys to predators. Include age and size of turckeys as well. I will be raising 12 bbb turkeys. They will be kept in a secure 64sq ft brooding shed (about 5sqft per bird) untill they get to big At what age will they outgrow this shed? The birds will then go into a 1,000sq ft pasture. Pasture will be inclosed in a 6ft fence buried a few inches in the ground. My worry is they will then be horribly vulnerable to predation. The fence should keep dogs out, but raccons could climb right over no? Are raccons a concern with these birds? Before anyone suggests it, there is no money left in this years "project" budget for an electric fence (maybe next year).
