    Ive been raising turkeys for a while now and was wondering the best coop idea for free ranging them. I only raise fifty of them so it would be nice if i could come up with a simple one coop idea for them all but they dont like my poultry netting i am currently using. Also they like to roost on the roof of their current coop. Any ideas or pics would be helpful. Thanks

    I really don't have a coop for just the turkeys. Both chickens, turkeys and ducks roost in the different coops. And most of the turkeys roost on top of the chicken house, chicken coop and in the pecan trees. So, I wouldn't be any help to you.

    If they free range all day, you probably wouldn't need anything fancy. Just something to keep them safe at night.

    I have a massive barn. They roost in the eaves with the peacocks and guineas.

    Haha I see. I need something that they will roost in and can be locked in and moved.
