Wanting to build good shelter/pen for 4 turkeys.

Put a roof on it. Turkeys will actually drown while looking up at the rain. I have had this happen. Good luck. Robin

A turkey house doesn't need to be made much different than a chicken house... Although, generally needs to be lower to the ground, not a steep ramp into the house if you use one. As they get heavier, it gets harder for them to jump into the house or walk up a higher ramp. Use good wood, no scraps, here as the turkeys can be near 40 lbs. when 6 months old. Hope this helps some :-)
