    I don't have any experience with turkeys, but I would place her in a pen or crate very near water and feed. Let her out to move around if she wants. Broken nails in chickens are very painful, and it will probably feel better with healing. Look for any signs of infection. You may have more response by posting on the turkey forum as well.
