    I am wondering with the turkey having such long tails how big does a person need to make a turkey nest really?

    Turkeys like seclusion when laying. a great nest for turkeys is a 55 gal drum, with straw. I personally took a 4x4 sheet of plywood, and leaned it against the wall in the corner of thier coop, where they started laying. They love it.
