    So my friend found a whole bunch of baby turkeys without their mom and she knew to leave them because their mom would come back then 2 weeks later she came back and all the chicks (idk what their called) were dead she thinks her cat ate them and their mom wasnt their again so she caught it and told me to get the chick and I did and it's cheeping really loudly and wont eat chicken feed so i dropped some peices of spinach in there and it plucked a peice and ignored the rest and we put one of our youngest chicks in there to teach it to eat and we want to get it younger friends but tractor supply chick days are over and idk what to do i cant release it because im too far away from the catching point and im not sure if i should keep my other chick in there because im scared of diseases it might have so please help!!!! (Also im borrowing my moms account my acccount is ocikat239)

    I am assuming you are talking about a wild turkey poult. If that is the case, contact your local game warden and turn the poult over to him.
