5. Kohanim are obligated to wear Tzitzis.

A BIT MORE

1. For example, when the Mishnah says "ha'Kol" with regard to the law of Zimun, it teaches that a minor who understands that we are blessing Hashem may join a Zimun. When the Mishnah says "ha'Kol" with regard to the law of impurity, it teaches that a minor can become Tamei.
 
2. For example, when the Mishnah says "ha'Kol" with regard to the law of a Metzora, it teaches that a minor can have the Halachic status of a Metzora. When the Mishnah says "ha'Kol" with regard to the Mitzvah to mix the ashes of the Parah Adumah with spring water, it teaches that a minor may perform the mixing, according to the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah.
 
3. When the Mishnah states this regarding sprinkling the ashes of the red heifer onto a person, it includes the fact that if it is done by an uncircumcised male it is valid. Regarding slaughter, it includes the slaughtering of either a Kusi or Jewish sinner as being valid.
 
4. As long as the Kohanim are not involved in the service of the Beis ha'Mikdash, they are obligated to dwell in the Sukah. During the time that they are involved in the Avodah, they are exempt from the Mitzvah of Sukah.
 
5. One might have thought that Kohanim should be exempt from Tzitzis, since the Torah's warning against wearing Kil'ayim appears next to the commandment to wear Tzitzis. Since the Kohanim are exempt from the Isur of Kil'ayim since their vestments contain Kil'ayim, perhaps they also are exempt from the Mitzvah of Tzitzis. The Gemara concludes that since Kohanim are included in the prohibition against wearing Kil'ayim when they are not performing the Avodah, they also are obligated in Tzitzis.
