    Here is my situation. I have a broody hen that only hatched one chick. She is on day 25 and I have no hope for the other eggs. I have the chick inside a brooder. my question is, can I put some turkeys in with the chick and have the broody raise them all together? i have heard the turkeys can get sick? Last summer I raised my turkeys separately. What do you guys think?

    No, I feed them the same, at least last year I did.
