I ordered my first turkeys. They are broad breasted whites for meat. I was planning on letting them just run around lose once they were big enough but then I started thinking, I have kids as young as 4 and I don't want 15 (minimum order because of shipping to Alaska) 30 lb turkeys chasing me and my kids down! I know turkeys can be mean. What I'm wondering is if turkeys can be housed with meat chickens if the space is big enough? I know chickens can give turkeys certain diseases. If not meat or laying hens, ducks? Or should I just try to keep them on their own away from all other poultry?
