    I have two very lovely young turkeys that I'm already doting over. I brought them inside for 2 days because of a ton of rain. Today I have them back out, but now I'm worried about night time temperatures. How chilly is too cold for them?

    Thanks!

    Well i always give my babies a 60 wat light bulb and raise it as they grow.But i always bring them in at night & continue with their light at night. I've never had a problem unless the power went out.The temperature probably shouldn't go below 75-70 for them that's my guess.Hope i helped.[​IMG]

    Good to go.
    After 6 week feathers they are pretty tough.
    But there is only two so huddling is harder.
    Since i don't know where you live that's the best I have for you.
