I have 22 chickens and 6 ducks all about 2 months old. I was thinking about adding 3 quail but decided not to due to them being too small and frail. what about a turkey?? i don't feel like our bird family is complete, apparently.. :D

I do not recommend adding a single turkey. Turkeys are very social birds and do best with more of their own kind. I definitely don't recommend adding a lone tom to a flock of chickens. During breeding season, this can result in "flat" chickens.

Turkeys also need much more "personal space" than chickens need.
