    I'm planning to expand into other types of birds soon: turkey, pheasant, quail, ducks, etc, and I was wondering if there are any problems mixing certain bird species in one flock? Ideally, I'd like to keep as many of them in one coop instead of having multiple, but want to make sure they're not at risk of killing one another.

    Any thoughts, resources, or experiences somebody can share with me? Thanks!

    Many people mix chickens with ducks but I would not personally advise mixing them with turkeys, pheasants, or quail.
