    So who has a setup with different sleeping/living quarters but the same run? I'm thinking one big shed divided into 4 or 5 sections for ducks, turkeys, chickens, peas, and pigeons with one large fenced in area just to keep them in when we're not home. Will everyone stay to their own homes? Anyone do this kind of thing? Share your experience, please!

    From what I read online Turkeys and chickens close by to each other is not a good thing as Turkey's can get black head from the chickens.

    BUt i also read others have done this with no ill affects so not sure. Try googling it

    Yes, I have no record of it in my area so I'm going to go ahead and try it.
