    Now and then it might not hurt but keep in mind that turkey feed has at least twice as much protein and about 4 times more calcium than chicken food. Turkey hens that lay need that extra calcium or it comes out of there own bones. Later down the line they could have a broken bone or weak legs if this is turkey you want for years to come. If it is a growing tom or a meat bird it might not do anything but slow the growth.
