Turkeys in the Shade

We raise our heritage turkeys on pasture.  This requires some housing to keep them cool and give them a place to roost.  We created a portable turkey shelter out of an old flatbed trailer, long sticks from the woodlot to perch on, cattle panels bent into an upside-down U shape and tarps over the top.   It is important to secure the tarps well so they don't flap in the wind... this makes them last much longer.  The space for the turkeys is ample and the cost was reasonable.  The whole structure can be moved periodically with a truck or tractor.

Speaking of Turkeys -- as of today, we have some left for home purchase before Thanksgiving.
