WILL WILD TURKEYS HURT MY HENS?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi just a quick questions.  My 5 hens are 3 yrs. old.  This is the first year I have noticed turkeys in my yard. .....I have a whole family of 18 passing through the back yard.  My chickens free range for part of the day.  Will the turkeys bother the chickens?  Or is this no problem.  Thanks for your input.

yes and no, they will not physically harm your birds but any diseases that they could be carrying could hurt your chickens.
