So, I just happened to go to TSC and they were having a poultry swap. I had seen this little Mennonite boy selling his 3 turkeys and I told him if he don't sell them to call me....well, long story short.....I will now have 3 turkeys. Can they stay with the chickens and is there anything I need to know since I have never raised turkeys before!!!

I read that chickens can carry "blackhead" (histomoniasis) which they are resistant to, but turkeys aren't. It is advised to not run turkeys on the same ground were chickens have run.

Thanks! I have been trying to read up on blackhead. The one deemed a bit sleepy yesterday after I got it home. I know they had a long day at the swap and there was no feed and water in the cage, hopefully it isn't already sick.
