Hi

I've recently inherited 3 turkeys (1 tom, 2 hens) which have lived with chickens in the past and are now in with my chooks. I have lubing cup drinkers for my chickens but I'm wondering if turkeys can actually use them?

You have the lubing cups and the turkeys. Maybe you could put the two in the same pen then let us know?
Mt Guineas worked them out so I cant see why they wouldn't be able to work them out.
My chooks and guineas just pecked at them out of curiosity, it didn't take long.

My Guineas are terrible with the lubing cups. I dont know why they stand there and they peck peck peck at the little yellow float.

The chooks just drink the water, but the bloody guineas insist on pecking the damed thing and overflow the water all the time.

I love them to death, but geez they are annoying sometimes..

I think if the silly, psycho guineas can work it out you shouldn't have any troubles with turkeys..
