I have seen people say that turkeys shouldn't be put out on the ground until they are a couple months old. Is this for disease prevention of some sort? I am planning to tractor my poults with some broilers until the broilers are ready to be processed at 8wks. They will go into the tractor at about 3wks old. When the broilers are processed, the turkeys will be going into their own 25 x 30 pen. What are your opinions on this plan? What complications might I run into? What type of housing should I provide for the turkeys in their pen? Do they need an enclosed area to sleep in or do they just need an area where they can have shade during the day?
