Turkey Pen and Turkey Housing

When your poults outgrow their brooders, your turkeys are going to need a turkey pen or some type of shelter for turkey housing.

Turkeys can be raised confined, or in an open yard. Housing in pens helps to protect them from the elements and from predators. Some housing is permanent and some housing is moveable, to help make the most of available pasture.

Share your knowledge about turkey housing. Did you make it or buy it ready made? Where did you purchase it or where did you acquire the plans to build it? If the turkey housing is moveable, is electricity an issue? Please show and tell. Send us pictures of your turkey housing, and of your turkeys, and tell us what you have discovered through your experience with raising turkeys.
