    I am contemplating on getting a turkey. I know nothing about them. I have 5 buff orpington hens and a nasty frizzeled rooster. Can I safely add a adolescent turkey to the bunch? Does the same rule apply that I need more than one? Thanks

    Turkeys should be kept with other turkeys. They don't do well mixed with chickens in my opinion, mine will chase and harass the chickens when the mood strikes them.
