Is too much calcium bad for Turkey chicks? I was reading it somewhere that a certain percent of calcium is bad for poults if so how much is too much

You should be feeding a starter, so calcium shouldn't be an issue. Do not feed any feed like a layer which is higher in calcium.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

As oldhen said you should be feeding a starter or grower . I don't know much about domestic breeds but with wild turkeys feeding a layer to young adult and adult  gobblers  causes problems heavy foot scales etc etc .
