Just wondering if Turkeys can be kept in the same pen as Pigs?
not that i have an answer,,,but know it will be asked,,,,how big is your pen?
our pig pen that has 4 Yorkie mixes in it and it is about a 1/4 acre
I don't recommend keeping anything with pigs. Pigs will eat your turkeys.
You don't want to pen up anything with a pig. If a pig takes a notion it will eat your turkey.
Not to mention i could only imagine what a muddy turkey would look like probably not pretty. nor very healthy...lol.
I wouldn't. We have chickens and pigs. Sometimes are chickens will get in there and the pigs will try to kill them and eat them. A couple times I have heard a chicken screaming and had to run out and rescue them from the pigs' mouth. Even though a turkey is larger it is a risk that I would not want to take.
Plus I wouldn't want the other animals in with the pig feces. Just a mess if you ask me.
That is what I was thinking but just needed to hear someone else say it also
yes, pigs are towards the carnivorous side of omnivory and will happily kill and eat any critter they can catch. you'd have to be betting on *very* perpetually alert turkeys...
