I have finished the new turkey shed, built all the pannels for there run, just need to conect them together and they can move in to there new complex. Do turkeys require a dust bath like chickens? If they do dose anyone have any ideas as to hoe to provide one in there run which is just meddow. And what sort of size does it need to be as they are only 9 weeks old at the moment i dont realy know how big they will get.

Yep they dust bath just like chickens.

They will do it in anything, dust, earth, sand, wood shavings, sawdust but it needs to be dry so for outside you could create a small shelter, so it catches the sun if possible.

Their size will depend on how long you keep them :) but they will get big.

How many do you have?

Our turkeys love to roll around in sand.
