A friend gave me a wild turkey egg that she saw a turkey lay and leave (not in a nest or anything). She had been incubating it at 85 degrees on a heating pad and but decided she couldn't keep it. I took it assuming that nothing would probably come of it, as it was already 5 days old and showed no signs of life when candled. I put it in my incubator just in case (at 99 degrees). But now (11 days after being layed I see something in there and now I am panicking. I haven't been turning it as regularly as I should have because I was just a day or so away from giving up. I have three chickens and I thought I could just keep it with them but as I am researching, apparently they can give eachother diseases? So, my questions are: 1) How likely is it that something bad would happen if I kept one turkey and three chickens together? I just have a backyard, no acreage, so I don't know how I could make a separate enclosure for it. 2) Is it possible to let it go after it is a little older? If I can't keep it with my chickens I think I would have to. Unless it would not survive, then I will figure something else out. 3) If I did keep it as a pet, would it be lonely since it would be the only one of its kind? Please help, I am sort of freaking out now that I know it is actually alive.
