    some say you shouldn't.

    I've never had a problem. Maybe its just luck. I don't know. Last year I had turkeys in runs recently occupied with chickens with no problem.

    this time around I picked up 22 turkeys and 4 silkies. They are sharing an outside coop that was occupied by chickens recently. I even left an older friendly black sexlink who is around 8 weeks in there to serve as a bit of an older sister. I kept a close eye on her at first just in case she decided to be mean.

    It is all working out well so far, but at some point I'm going to have to remove the silkies and sexlink due to how big the turkeys will get.
