    I am interested in getting some turkeys... I know nothing about them except that I love to eat turkey. I currently raise chickens and ducks. Do turkeys get along with them? Anyone near me that has turkeys?

    Thanks!

    I am in NC but I don't know where Old Fort is. My guess is the western part of the state. I have 3 turkeys and they are really neat. Mine get along fine with all the chickens, ducks, geese, guineas........ I've found that my hens do like to hang with the chickens. One hen is actually roosting with the chickens in the coop...... go figure. The tom and the hen sleep on top of a chicken coop near the guineas.

    My tom is not fond of people so I do have to put him in a pen when people come to visit. The hens are very shy and run off when spooked. I have bronze turkeys. I really enjoy them.
