    Does anyone have any experience brooding geese and turkey together. I see that turkey need 30% protein and geese are the same as ducks at 20%. I was thinking of using Purina Game Bird Chow, which is 30% and keep them together for a bit. Any suggestions or comments that would help?
    Thank you

    I would not brood turkey poults and goslings in the same brooder.

    In addition to the different feed requirements, turkeys need to be kept dry. What I remember about brooding goslings is that they make a terrible mess with the water. I also recall that feeding goslings a high protein feed can cause angel wing.
