Ducks and turkeys

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,
We have an established flock of 6 ducks, that we will be thinning by 2 his spring. We plan on getting 6 more ducklings, but I also wanted to get a 1 or 2 turkeys.
Has anybody raised ducks and turkeys together? Can it be done? If my ducklings and turkeys are raised together will my current flock be a problem for them? Thank you!

The ducklings will make the brooder wet and damp which will be deadly to turkey poults who require a warmer brooder and more attention from you the first week to teach them to eat and drink, they are also clumsy and can drown in the waterers. I wouldn't mix them.
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.
