    1. get her warm
    2. Get her good food! Boiled eggs (a little mashed and watered down) normally work.
    3. get rid of mites (sprays and dust can be found in co-ops)

    hope they turn out well! Mites can kill, make sure none of your other birds (if they are your own birds?) have them. --I have no experience with turkeys but with my experiences this should work with chickens and quail--
