    Will a turkey get along with a male and female ringneck pheasant?

    I don't think so. The male and female ringneck might gang up on the turkey. Or the Turkey might attack them, if it is a larger species of turkey. My Mannie, Royal Palm Tom, attacks anything during feeding time.

    Its only a guess but I raised my Poults and Chicks together and I have not had any problems with them getting along but as breeding time comes along there may be.
    Sounds like an exsperiment to me that would bring about some new Information worth knowing.

    Just an observation... I live on the edge of a very small town, and for the first several years we lived here we had pheasants all over the place, but no turkeys. Then one year there were no pheasants, and we started having turkeys hang around. After a few years with the turkeys, they disappeared and now we have pheasants again. I seems like we have 'either/or', not 'and'. I don't know if that actually means anything...
