How many people out there are in the same position as me.     Christmas is coming turkeys are getting large and the last thing i want is to go up my allotment and find my 4 norfolk bronze turkeys have been NICKED . What tips do you have to keep turkeys safe from thieves. Apart from don;t let people know they are there.

That is awful.

That is one of the reasons the allotments near me stopped having chickens, because the vermin of the 2 legged kind.

I dont really know how to deter them either, they seem pretty determined to have whatever someone else has got  >:(

There's not a lot you can do if they are up the allotment, apart from camping outside their shed!

We are reasonably lucky in that ours are in the garden, surrounded by 30ft high conifers and the dog wandering around.  But we've just had a letter from the local drainage board to say that any trees less than 9metres from the edge of the watercourse must be cut back and kept neat and tidy.

I've been helping Brian with this, but it means that there is less foliage and they can be seen from the road if you look carefully, so we are going to get some bamboo screening to put up along that bit, as this near Christmas it does worry you.

Brian keeps counting them to make sure they are all still there!  ;)
