Turkey House Plans - All You Need To
Know Before Deciding on A Turkey House
So you have been
raising a few turkey poults in the backyard for your own family's
consumption. Now you want to take your turkey project to the next
level and raise more than what your family needs. What do you do now?
How exactly do you scale up? The first thing you need to seriously
think about is how to come up with turkey house plans.
From this point on, you should be ready to have room for adult
turkeys, both males and females, and provide them with an environment
that is conducive to reproducing and raising their own babies. If you
have been into turkey poult-raising, you will find the next level
easier because there is not a lot of difference from what you are
Deciding on the best turkey house plans are an important factor in the
success of your turkey raising project. Most turkey house plans will
have provisions for heat lamps, which regulate the temperature in the
breeding space. If you are looking at several plans, it is recommended
that you choose one that is scalable. This way, you can scale it up
should you decide later that you want more turkeys, or scale it down,
if you want to downsize your stock.
Turkey house plans typically come with an accurate list of the
materials that you need. For best results, stick to the list of
materials unless you can make knowledgeable alterations to the plan.
For example, purchase the required length of wood, as well as the
required number of meters of meshed wire fence. The roof is something
that you can have flexibility with. You can pretty much use any
material of your choice for the roof, as long as it provides
protection to the turkeys against exposure to the elements.
Finally, the typical turkey house plans should also have areas for
males and females to breed. The breeding space should be comfortable
enough to accommodate turkeys for the week-long breeding period. After
the breeding period, the females will need a nesting box to lay their
eggs in. The nesting box should be big enough to fit the nesting
turkeys, as well as small enough to protect the eggs as they are laid
one per day. It normally takes a week to fill the nesting box with
eggs. After the week-long laying of eggs, you have the option to take
the eggs away to incubate them, or leave them there for their mothers
to warm until they hatch.
