    I recently bought 3 turkeys, 1 Nargansette Tom/hen and 1 Blue Slate hen. I am already in love :)

    I have them free range with my goat kids and donkey. I would like to set up some natural nesting spots, what can I do to attract a nesting Turkey? I was thinking of adding several small dog houses with hay.

    I have no intentions of hatching them or brooding them myself but my chicks fare well in that same pen so I am hoping the Turkey poults do as well. [​IMG]
