Turkeys and Chickenstu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I bought some more chicks and also got a couple turkey chicks.  My question is, can I keep them together or will the turkeys be a problem for the chickens?  My coop is about 8x12 and I let them out every day to roam the yard.

I had trouble with trying to keep them together, others have not. Sometimes when turkeys are raised with chickens they think they are chickens and can do serious damage to them if they get into disputes, especially at sexual maturity. I had two young jakes kill a leghorn rooster, and my younger turkeys will often chase the chickens, if the chickens can't get away they can be in big trouble.
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.
