    We have mink around here and I am getting a turkey as a pet tomorrow, I am going to try and get him to sleep in the enclosed pen but the coop has too many chickens in it so he will be sleeping outside the coop. I just wonder if he is in as much danger as the chickens are if a mink gets in.

    Thank you, I will be securing the pen today in the rain and maybe put off getting him for a few days until I can check every nook and crany!
