    We haven't let our pullets out to free range (they have a spacious yard by some standards, so they've been ok) because a flock of wild turkeys was living here for a while and we didn't want them to be injured by the turkeys or catch anything from them. The turkeys are gone now and the question is, how long will fowl ticks, mites and lice hang around? It would be sad if they were to catch something from the turkeys after the fact. bok.
