The Bros decided to raise turkeys for the Thanksgiving season. They are outside making pipping noises and chirps as they wander around their pen eating grain and grass and insects. At night they go into the truck cap. As they get older they will want to roost. The Bros have built this handy hut that should let all 20+ of them roost safely.

The turkeys and their night time quarters are on the pasture in a large netting fence. The fence slows predators from getting in and the turkeys from getting out. We regularly move the fencing so that they get fresh pasture and they spread their droppings for us increasing the nitrogen in the pasture.

    1. They will be $5.00/lb. We are aiming for a weight between 10 and 23 lb. However, since we have not raised turkeys much, we are not sure what weights we will end up with.
