    We have 2 turkeys, male and female, don't know their age, got them at the end of October 2016. The hen started laying around early January.

    We were planning on letting them live with our ducks, we have 14. Or maybe house them with some chickens.

    Which would be best??[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Turkeys like to harass other poultry. The could kill the chickens and the ducks tend to keep everything wet. I have never seen my turkeys go after my ducks but they have never been confined together either.

    Ducks make a mess of everything, especially drinking water, so I would not keep ducks with turkeys, chickens, peafowl, etc.
