    More information please! how old is it? what conditions is it in? how long has it had symptoms? what did your chickens die of? were they with the turkey? what are you feeding them?

    OK. Well, I can't tell if you're saying the scratched foot is quite serious and is hurting the turkey, or is just a minor thing?? I have no idea what the water out of the nose issue is... that sounds very bad. Turkeys are notoriously frail during the first few weeks. Has your turkey been eating? It might be good to supply grit too, if it recovers. Anyone else have any ideas?

    how is the turkey chick? If it's not eating, you might try feeding it mashed up hard-boiled egg yolks.
