What is the best home remedy to give your turkey if you think she is dehydrated lethargic because she sat on her nest for too long without getting off

Welcome Kara,

If this were a parrot I would say pedialyte and move food and water bowl closer.
Let´s see if some other members can confirm this being ok for a turkey...

@Destiny ?

Pedialyte is safe for turkeys and a great choice for rehydration. If you can't get it, honey in water is another option.

If you have no pedialyte... you can google how to make your own electrolyte rich drink to help. Watermelon is usually received well by poultry so maybe if you can get some of that you can feed that to help. Coconut water is also good to help with dehydration as it helps replace lost electrolytes also.
