    Currently, I have a wild turkey hen that was hatched my a chicken after the turkey nest was accidentally destroyed here on the ranch. The turkey hen runs with a banty and Buff Orpington hen and thinks she's a chicken. I've just started letting them free-range out of their 15x30' pen. My question: I'd like to get another turkey hen, just for fun. What kind should I get? Also want to get one more chicken hen. I know about blackhead, but I don't think it's a problem here since they have enough room to free-range. I also give them DE and cayenne which prevents blackhead.

    Thank you!!
