    People who live in cold weather states and who also have Turkens, how do your birds fair in the winter?? Do I need to knit some Turken scarves...hey...I'm serious! [​IMG]
    Should have thought of that before I bought the ugliest, cute little things...

    They'll be fine. I have several, and have never had problems with the cold...
    They sure are cute little peeps, aren't they? [​IMG]

    HI I am 80 miles south of the Canadian Border here in NE Washington. We hit -17 last winter and my old turken momma hen did fine:) She's 4 this year and spent her first 3 in the San Francisco Bay area. Talk about a climate change!!
