I think that there is a disease that chooks can have that they will pass on to turkeys?
maybe someone can help with that?
I found when i had turkeys with my hens years ago that the toms killed my poor hens by mating with them then squashing them.

chooks give turkeys black head which is carried on a paricitic worm that chooks have. you will be lucky to have turkeys ready for christmas if the thath in spring. the onmly speing hatch turkeys that are ready for christmas are the meat turkeya and YOU Do NOt put them any where near CHOOKs as they have no reaiatanse to sinus that chooks also give turkeys. Meat turkeys are ready I 12 weeks. I have one which is 25kg at 18weeks old. Note meat turkeys do not mate you have to AI them.

Normal frm turkeyas take 6 months to be ready to kill.
