    I am getting turkeys tomorrow from a friend. Only three of them but they are roughly 4 weeks old. He put them in with his baby chicks and just had them all eat the medicated chick starter. I know that he should have been feeding them the game bird, higher protein feed but unfortunately that is not the case. Is there any risks with me switching them over to game bird feed or flock raiser at this point? Is there any problems that this may have caused that I should be aware about?
