I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

It's a couple months later but you may still need an answer.

 

If you raise a few chicks with your turkeys they will learn to eat and drink for the chicks.

 

Turkey poults are not very smart so they need to be taught to eat either by you or by another chick (Turkey or Chicken).

 

I raised 6 chicks with my 9 bourbon reds this year and only lost one. And it was because it got stuck not because it didn't eat or drink.

 

Anyway I hope you are able to raise happy healthy birds.:)
