    Hello! Please tell me, about your experiences with chickens, turkeys & ducks in your garden.
    Can you mix turkeys & ducks only?
    Does anybody knows what turkeys & ducks eat in the wild? (plant names, please)
    Can they eat sagebrush, mezquite pods?
    Do ducks need a pool?
    I will be the parent of the turkeys & ducks, what precautions should I have? or what do I need to do?
    I have experience with chickens, but I don't want to grow them anymore. Saying, that I have a chicken coop, all the supplies (feeders etc)
    Thank you in advance

    You can post on the "turkey thread," for information about them. and on the "Duck thread," as well. You said you don't want chickens anymore, so I overlooked mentioning threads.

    G’Day from down under boyss7 [​IMG] Welcome!

    This is a link to the Duck Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks and this one to the Turkey Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/20/turkeys Diva mentioned.

    As I have no experience with either, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
