Turkeys are flock birds.

Your tom will be fine but would probably be happier with a playmate.

Sorry for your loss of the hen.

That's good.

Just be careful if he becomes enamoured with them. They could be injured.

X2, he may take over the flock too. If you have a rooster, they may fight and your rooster will loose.  I don't keep toms by themselves unless they are in a pen. Try to find him a mate or two.
