    I wish to make a Churkey. Can anybody help me with this?

    I've mocked up an image to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

    Welcome to BYC. You'd be better off purchasing Turkens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from NY State! [​IMG]
    Like dawg said, Turkens are your best bet. Putting a tom over a chicken hen would probably kill the hen, and a rooster over a turkey hen wouldn't be able to complete his task. Turkens are about as close as you can get to a turkey/chicken cross (but they are all chicken).
