Hi and welcome to BYC - I'm sorry about your losses. Whilst I know nothing about turkeys, they are a social animal and so your loner will certainly benefit from some company. 

 

The "Turkey" forum peeps will be able to advise further, i hope so please re-post on that forum and provide as much detail as possible. 

 

Best wishes

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

Too cold in the brooder. Turkeys should have access to at least 95F under the heat in the brooder and that temp can be reduced by about 5F every week. I prefer a large brooder 3-4 sq.ft./chick. Provide a very warm spot right under the lamp with lots of room for the chicks to escape the heat, that way they can regulate the their comfort.

Make sure they know where food and water is and watch to see that they really eat and drink.  I have heard of people putting a chicken CHICK or two in with them, as  "turkey tutors," to teach them about food and water and the ropes of being a bird.
