I want to raise 3 or 2 Turkeys for Thanksgiving next year. I will raise them in a 2 acre property in semi suburbia. The way the property is laid out is that In the front yard which is about 9743 Sqft of Orange and lemon trees. Or In the back yard about a acre of a steep hill meeting the creek. I’ve seen coyotes and all sort of predators using the creek. I don’t live on the property so I need a way to open the coop in the morning. I’m raising 8ducks and 18 chickens in the orchard they have a electronic door that opens in the morning and I go up the in the afternoon to close the door. The ducks live in a plastic fenced in part of the orchard and have a separate coop. How loud are Turkeys? Louder than 8 ducks? The idea that I have is setup an electrical fence in the orchard and have the Turkeys sleep in the lemon trees. Would they be killed? Or have them raised in a medical coop. I did have 6 chickens killed in the front yard overnight last year. What would the best way to raise turkeys?
