    I was wondering if mixing in some turkeys in with my chickens is ok?

    i have always mixed mine.. best thing to do is to contact your local agricultural extension office and ask them if there have been any cases of turkey blackhead in your area.. if there has you may want to keep them separate

    turkey blackhead is a disease that turkeys can get from chickens.. where I live there has never been any cases of it.. so i can mix them without any worries
