Advice needed

Hi folks. Just got three bronze turkeys, 9 weeks old. Should I put them with my chickens or my goose

Don't know about the goose but chickens and turkeys should not be mixed. Something to do with a disease called blackhead.

Ya, I was told they were wimpy when they're little but these are about 10 weeks now so they're past the worst of it... Or so I was told.

Terkeys need 30% protein, ordinary chicken starter will starve them,
A lot of people make this mistake i think.
