Mixing turkey breeds and types. Does it work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have three turkeys.  I have two meat turkeys, a bronze and white, age 5 weeks.  I also have a one week old royal palm turkey that I bought this afternoon.  They are separated but can still see each other through poultry wire.  Will these three turkeys live in harmony or are their lifestyle/breeds so different that they won't really hang out much?  Will the meat turkeys ever lay eggs?  I guess I'm not even sure which gender they are yet.  Thanks

They'll all get along fine and "talk turkey" with each other. Broad breasted toms won't be able to mate because of the oversized breast.
