    I don't know much about turkeys except that they can get "Black Head," disease from Chickens. You would do best to ask on the "Turkey thread."

    I had my Wild Eastern Turkey with our chicks of the same age for the last 5 weeks. They got along great. We got 2 more Wild Eastern Turkeys a couple week younger than the first and put the 3 together, the older one is really mad about being separated from the chickens and has escaped and rejoined the chickens several time. His name is now Houdini. :wee
