    I just dod my first group of baby chickens and they are ready to go into the coop…..now I am wanting to get a few turkeys (about 3). Is there any difference, besides food, that I should know about raising turkeys in regards to the chickens???? OR are they about the same??

    They are about the same-- however, when they grow up that doesn't mean they will be friends. So I house them spearately, and when free ranging the chickens have room to excape a determined turkey.
