Hi gang!

When I get my turkeys and duckies, do they need to have separate sleeping arrangements, ie,...different coops. Will the turkey fit in the pop door?

Thanks!

I've always just had chickens, but when I placed my order of spring chicks, I added ducks and guineas. We also have one turkey that we hatched out (only one of 12 that hatched). Currently I house the chicks, guineas, and turkey together. The turkey is like the ugly duckling. But they all get along great. I did have to separate the ducks, because they are so MESSY. They also grow about 10x faster and are HUGE in comparison. I have them in a large pin and have a big water dish for them to play in. I am not sure what I'll do with the turkey but I will have the ducks, chickens, and guineas seperated once out of the brooder. Oh and I feed them Flock Raiser or Grower or whatever. Not sure if I was any help or not.

I believe you have to keep your turkeys seperate. But the ducks let em go. They will either bond or split up. They will rarely fight from my experince. Good luck
