    Our Turkey absolutely loves our Pilgrim goose , gussie. She is quite the looker but he goes nuts when she gets near him. I cannot find any information as to whether it can or has been done in cross breeding a turkey and pilgrim goose. There seems to be a love story going on between them and if they would be happy and safe i would consider putting them together.

    They will not be able to produce fertile eggs together.

    If they are part of flocks the turkey may pay less attention to his hens if he's overly keen on the goose. There was a love affair here between a ram and a mare. The ram didn't like the stallion being near the mare and would box him, the stallion kicking out too.

    interspecies love, my drake was constantly chasing and trying to mate with my hens. The roosters were not happy and neither was the drakes girl.
