Can I brine chicken and turkey together?

This weekend I'm thinking of doing some chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks, etc) and also some turkey legs.  Any reason why I can't or should not combine them into a single brine?

   Ravenelli,IMO, I would see no reason you could not do this;however you should wash each piece well before adding to the Brine.

   Now if you had whole birds,I would most certainly go seperate.`Hopes this helps , someone else will chime in shortly to add to the confusion
,Until then...

No reason that i know of that you can't brine in the same container.

I have done chicken legs in w/ a turkey.

 Legs went on the grill for snacks while the big bird was smoking.
