Hi Joe,
I combine tractors and free range. I know it sounds like a contradiction. I start my turkeys in the tractors, when they get larger and a bit more capable of taking care of themselves, I open the tractors every morning and let them free range. They go back in the tractors at night and I close them up for predator protection.
