    Im new to Turkeys, I have chickens and ducks. Building them a coop and not sure if it needs to be completely surrounded by hardwire cloth like the chickens. All the pics I see online just have "fencing" around the house, but nothing completely varmint proof like the chickens.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Mine is made from heavy duty welded wire in a 2" x 4" rectangular grid. I pneumatic stapled this to a stud wall from from ground to roof. I did put small grid HW cloth on each end of the roost so a greedy raccoon couldn't snatch one at night though the 2" x 4" holes. Seems to work well for them. Has a tin over OSB roof but it open air on all 4 sides. I have a walk in door and made them a small door as well.
