post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am totally new to the life, I have 2 bronze turkeys , 2 peking ducks, 2 guiney's and 6 hens, can anyone give me some helpful hints, they are at 6 months now. I need info on how to do the coops for winter, how much food they should be eating, all are pets and I am most worried about my turkey's Titus and Giddion. We live in Mi . thanks ahead of time for any feedback

You could keep everyone together, but the turkeys may pick on your chickens too much, and the ducks will be a bit messy. I would feed an all flock type of ration so everyone can eat the same feed, some keep their feeders full, I put out as much as they will eat before bedtime, which I had to figure out.

In Michigan your going to need a fairly good sized coop to house them, good ventilation but not drafty, a run to go out in during nice days, or a place in front of the coop, I put hay down for them to stand on. South facing windows, and 2x4 roosts, my chickens prefer the 2 up, my turkeys the 4 up.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
