    I have turkey poults now, with chicks, ducks, geese, and guineas due next week. Which ones, if any, can cohabitate nicely? And which definitely need separate housing? I'd like to keep it to 4 houses/runs if possible.

    TIA!

    My ducks and chickens share a coop and run. My geese - beat up my chickens and ducks if they can - so they have their own run. All are out on the property during the day so cross paths with each other.

    When I was younger, we kept a turkey with our chickens and ducks - never had any problems.
