What breed of turkeys are they? Do they free-range?

I keep my chickens and turkeys in similar areas with no problems. But my free-range during the day and share the coop (sometimes) at night. If you have heritage turkeys, they often prefer sleeping outside anyways.

I keep turks and chickens together, if blackhead is in your area then you will probly have problems, when I start turks I place some chicks in with them to teach them how to eat, drink. baby turks can't see very well. My turkeys free range they live in the pine trees havn't been in a pen or building since last may.
