    g'day fellas

    We have some scrub turkeys (Alectura lathami) running wild around our home in Brisbane, Australia. They act like chooks, scratching around the place and clucking n all. They look like big (about the size of an american turkey hen), black, long tailed chooks with small, red heads. Im a potential chicken buyer and carer, im looking in to buying some chooks soon...what I want to know is will they conflict with the scrub turkeys?

    cheers,

    i dont know, but they're not supposed to be any good...besides, im also worried about the effect the chooks will have on the turkeys...they're pretty docile, i think they would suffer more than the chooks.
