hi will turkeys and ducks get along thanks for repliing
Free ranging or in a pen? Many people seem to free range them together but I personally would keep them in the same pen.
I haven't raised turkeys, can't here because blackhead is prevalent and has been on this property before I've heard they are relatively fragile at first so I don't think that brooding together with ducks and the dampness would be good for them. I don't see that having them in the same yard would be a problem but I wouldn't house them together.

I wouldn't do it. Tom turkeys can get very agressive during the breeding season and could easily kill your ducks.
It is not recommended to keep turkeys with any other kind of fowl.
Ducks are messy and like to play in the mud while turkeys like it dry and get sick when exposed to damp conditions.
