Where do they roost?

    I have some turkeys, that I hatched with a batch of Icelandic Chickens, who act just like the chickens and roost up high, in the rafters of the coop.

    I have another batch of turkeys that hatched all by themselves and have never lived with chickens, so I don't know what to expect.

    Where do Blue Slates usually like to roost?

    Up high? How high?

    Down low?

    On a 2X4? On a 2X6?

    In a box with a fox?

    Tell me, where do your Blue Slates find their bliss?

    Ours seem to like higher roosts, and either 2x4 or 2x6 is accepted. We have hens who like to roost with the peas if that says anything.
