    Hi I have a flock of mixed chickens and would like to add a couple of turkeys to the mix but wasn't sure how they would do together. A local feed store has some white turkeys...that the info they are giving on them and some bantam turkeys. Would one or the other be better to mix in and will a Tom battle with my roster? Any input would be great Thanks

    My turkey hen Imelda was raised with chickens and they got along great. One of the roosters seemed to have a crush on her. Don't know about the males though as the male I had died young, so I don't know if there would have been trouble later.

    they shouldnt fight, but you run the risk of the chickens giving nasty chicken diseases to the turkeys.
