    Do Turkeys need a house to go into. I am getting some gazebo type cages wrapped in wire. two are 8x8 and one is 8x 16
    There are roosts and a roof. I can put some plywood up on the sides during the winter. Is this enough to keep them warm??

    Yes, I think so. Just like my husband told me, the wild turkeys don't even have a home to go into.

    As long as they have a place to get out of the wind and rain, and shade from the sun, they should be fine. Mine prefer to be outside, I just prefer them inside because I can better protect them from predators.
