    My turkeys won't stay in the chicken house or in the house I built them. They like to stay outside high on a perch. They are safe and secure, but can I use ust a tarp for protection. They don't seem to like anything I build! this is at night.

    Probably will not stop a raccoon or possum, but what are your options unless you herd them in every night like we do.

    Most of my Turkeys would prefer to be out side also but I am not going to take the chance as KRISH stated if I allowed my Turkeys to roost out side there would be casualties by now from the Coons and Possums.
    I have to lug there big butts into there coop every night.
    There are a few that ack like there expecting it like tucking them in for bed LOL.
