    Our turkeys have done fine down below freezing but tonight is supposed tor reach the low teens. Are my heritage turkeys ok roosting in trees like usual?

    Not a problem. My heritage turkeys roost outside in all types of weather. They have done fine in -27° F so far this winter. Their roost is out of the wind and they choose to roost there even though the coop is open and available to them.
