Does anyone know how much different in size a 1 day old poult and a 1 day old chick (chicken) are?
Not a lot, but give them a week and watch out!!!!! Those turkeys grow to fit their feet, fast!
teehee, thanks. Can't wait
Mine are blue slates which are a medium sized bird. They are probably maybe a half inch taller for a couple of days. You are not supposed to keep turkeys in with chickens because of the diseases they can spread but I do let them hang out with the chicks for a couple of days so they can show them around to the water and feed. Turkeys will stand right next to a waterer and die of thirst because they are a little slow, ok a LOT slow.
I am getting the poults next mo. and the chicks in Apr. They won't be together, I was just curious. I will be diligent to make sure they get their feed and water, the little sillies...
