turkey chalet - with recycled skiis

  1. Presenting Los Loco Turkeys Chalet & Ski Club.

    Still need to add a roost, replace the blue sheet with a tarp, and finish the end of it that is currently just cardboard stapled on. It also needs wheels so I can move it.

    Hey, that's cool with the skis. Can you use it like a chicken tractor?

    We just finished our turkey run yesterday. The baby turkeys look so happy in there, now they can run around and eat grass [​IMG]

    Great idea!
  9. Thank you, everyone. Skiis were really easy to work with - didn't need to cut any angles.

    Dangerous, yes, after the turkeys grow up and can free-range it will be a chick -n- guinea tractor. The turkey coop isn't quite ready, this is a good solution for now. I am still bringing them in at night as it gets cold here in Witness Protection-ville. [​IMG]
