    Has anybody tried raising turkeys and chickens together? I've heard that they can get different diseases if you put them together but we were sent turkey and chicken eggs by a friend and one turkey egg hatched and one chicken. Are there any thoughts to this subject? jrae@bayland.net is my e-mail address.

    Turkeys and chickens can be raised together. The biggest disease that affects them is Blackhead disease. But as long as the Turkeys and Chickens are on a regular worming schedule they will be fine.
