    Turkeys can get blackhead disease from chickens, but if she (at least I think it's a she -- I'm no pro at turkey sexing) was living with them already, then she's either immune to it and/or has already been exposed. I'd think she'd be fine living with your chickens.

    Bronze. I think it's a girl too. How old is she?
    I have four turkeys grown with chicken from day zero, and had no problems.
