I just got Bourbon reds which we will be keeping as pets. I haven't been able to find much information about taking care of turkeys past raising up babies as I guess they're largely raised for food. Mine were raised to be pets (one year olds) and I got them quite suddenly as they needed a place to go. Now I need help! I have kept chickens before, are they going to be similar to caring for a house full of chickens? Right now my birds have a yard to run around in and I have a hole cut in my shed which leads into a closed off area for them for night/nesting/etc. The yard is surrounded by a six foot fence, which I'm assuming is high enough. Do they need a perch off the ground? How large of a nesting box? How often do the females lay eggs assuming they're healthy and eating well? How cold can they get before they need heat lamps? I live in the desert where it only freezes maybe three or four times a year. How hot can they get, for that matter? Sorry there are so many questions! Thanks for any advice people can give me.
