    I want to get to work today on building a perch for my turkeys and would like to see what is required.

    I plan on having a roof over it as well.

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

    Anything goes.
    But the big toms can't fly to high so one four to five feet off the ground would be high enough.

    Thank you.

    I think I'm going to tap out on this one and have someone build me one. I stopped off at the local Lowes and man...the price tag was soaring quickly with treated wood and all that I would need for what I was trying to achieve. I can have one made with enough room for 14 turkey's comfortably for under $350 delivered with a reputable place close to me.
