I'm a big animal lover and I say if you have the space, and can care properly for your animal, they're should be no reason NOT to get the turkey. As far as I know they chickens and turkey should be fine. Perhaps if someone knows different they will speak up. But if you can care properly for both chickens and turkey, why not get one? If I had the space and area I would not mind a turkey. Hope this helps out some! I would do what you feel is right . If you want a turkey, get one. Just be prepared to care for it in the way it needs to be cared for. Best wishes.
