    So i just got my day old chicks from McMurry yesterday morning. 27 pullets, 10 Red rangers and 6 cornish rocks. All are doing well and look great. As expected from McMurrays.

    My question is this: My lock Big R (similar to TSC) is getting 50 turkey in with their chicks this week. I am raising my pullets and meat birds separately. I was thinking of getting a couple of turkeys to raise for meat and raise them with my meat birds. Considering the fact that the turkeys need a higher protein, is this at all feasible or advisable? I dont have the turkeys yet, and wont get them if they have to be raised by themselves. Just wondering if its do able to have them together from the starts.

    thanks for any help in advance
