    I have an opportunity to get 5 turkey poults to raise. I get to keep 4 of them if I donate 1 to the local foodbank. How much inside living space do turkeys need? I need to figure out if I have enough housing available. Thanks!

    we kept three in our mudroom for a while...set up about a 3x3 area at first, then made it bigger until they hopped out when night and pooped all over our mud room, thus changing the name of the room to the poop room. the following saturday i built a coop and run for them...and our poop room became the mud room about three bottles of simple green later.
