    So I wanted to hatch some ducks. Found eggs from a gal nearby. She also has Slate turkeys. We discussed turkey at a later date, but she gave me 4 eggs because she wasn't positive of fertility yet. So I incubated them with my duck eggs. One was not fertile and two quit around day 10. The last one hatched yesterday along with the first 2 ducks. Waiting on 2 more pipped ducks now. The ducks appear to be really mean to the sweet little turkey. Its a beautiful Slate by the way. I'm so glad it hatched. But I'm a little worried if it will survive the ducks tortures? I realize it will be much larger than the ducks in due time lol!

    So I question the turkey experts, should I separate them when I move them to the brooder or do you think they will be fine together? I'll add a pic shortly.
