so my plan ( seems stupid now) was to let my turkeys free range until they were ready for the dinner plate and then keep a pair or two to reproduce for next year. The problem is that they are already destroying everything with their giant turds.
how do all you turkey people do it? they just fly right over my fenced areas so that doesnt seem like it would work.
I don't know if it feasible for you, but what about a herding breed dog? I havethe same situation but my turkeys only come in my yard when I "invite" them in otherwise they just free range over our 11 acres and stay out. If you are going to raise them long term its a possible solution, with the right dog.
