My 15 Bourbon Red poults are 10 weeks old. For the past 2 weeks I've let them out to range all day in good weather. At night, I herd them into a small pen and then catch them one by one and put them in a predator-proof coop for the night. This was working well, and they seemed to be getting the idea that they could go into the coop on their own. Tonight two of them went up the ramp, in the door and flew up to their roosting pole. I tried to edge the others in that direction, and then one of them flew up and roosted on top of the fence (6-foot high chain link). Immediately the rest jumped up and flew up there. When I tried to get a few down, they just flew over to the top of another fence a few yards away. From there, they flew to the top of the lean-to, and from there, up onto the barn roof. I tried to entice them down with food. "No thanks," they said, "we like it fine up here; the view is great." I'm just wondering if anything is going to get them tonight. It's not supposed to rain. They are safe from coyotes and foxes, at least. But a raccoon could get up there, I'm sure. And I think there's probably a great-horned owl out there on his cell phone right now, calling up his buddies and saying: "Hey man, party at my house tonight, you won't believe what I've got in store for you... young, tender turkeys, 15 of them. Yes, you heard me right, 15! Sure, you can bring your cousin along!" Wish my babies luck; I'll post an update in the morning.
