Hi Everyone, I've read and heard a lot about turkeys getting diseases and dieing from being put with chicken. What exactly causes this disease? What is the disease called so that I can do research on it? My husband just added some brooders to my chicken coop (he did an AWESOME job; I'm so proud ). Our coop is HUGE as it was initially a large shed we converted into a coop. He took one of the walls and added 4 "teenage" brooders along side it. We will be transferring the babies there as they grow out of the baby brooders. We have 6 turkeys that are about 2 months old we'd like to put in one of those brooders. We've had some people tell us that would be fine, but then others tell us they would surely die. I figured I would ask here as this site has helped this "newbie" so much as I start my flock of fowls. Any advice for this newbie with turkeys?
