    Hi there,
    I'm new here so bare with me if I repeat a question. I have 4 Peking Duck hens and I am looking to maybe add a turkey as a pet. I am wondering if there is a specific breed and gender I should be looking for. Can a turkey coexist with ducks? Thank you for any and all advice you can share [​IMG]

    Yes, turkeys and ducks can live together. I have a bunch of ducks and they are with my turkeys. I don't have any problems.

    I have my turkeys, ducks, and geese ranging together. Just be careful if you have a pond for the waterfowl. Turkeys are not good swimmers and can run the risk of drowning, like chickens do.

    I also find the turkeys will often do their own thing and split off from the rest of the flock to go hunt bugs and stuff.
