    Hi, all! I was kindly directed to this section by a fellow forum member. I am embarrassed to say that I didn't even know we had a turkey section here...sorry!!

    Anyway, I want to get 2 turkey chicks to raise for Holiday meals.

    Would a portable chicken coop and run like Omelet or something work for turkeys?

    Has anyone ever used a portable chicken coop and run to house turkeys? If so, what brand and any drawbacks?

    Thanks so much!!

    Turkeys need a bit more room than chickens. If temporary, a chicken run will do. But something like a dog kennel is better for from 2 to 12 birds. Even then you will want to free range them some.
