Can chickens and Domestic turkey live with each other without any problems?
The post by yinepu is informative. Blackhead is not found everywhere. I haven't seen a post here that I can recall where anyone has lost a turkey to it?
A local vet who saw my chickens & baby turkey together and told me that 'blackhead will make turkeys just drop dead'. She suggested that they should be housed apart. She also said that a turkey can get sick from blackhead from free ranging in the same areas as chickens.
Although I do now house my chickens & turkey separate... I never had a problem while they did live together.
