I was wondering if I could temp move my 4 broad breasted turkeys from their 4'x4' brooder into my chicken coop. I hear mixed words on housing chickens and turkeys together. This wouldn't be permanent just until I get the turkey pen up and housing/roosts done. Ideas? They are in a brooder with 4 RIR's right now.

I wouldn't really worry about it. I've never had turkeys be any real problem until they were older and tried to mate with chicken hens and suffocated them. Maybe put the brooder in with the chickens during the day then let the turkeys out at night so everyone is used to each other.
