    I recently introduced 2 turkens to my flock of 4 about 3 months now and the 4 won't let the turkens eat they have to steal food and then the bigger girls attack them and the turkens just hang out by them selves all day. The turkens are 5 months old now

    Since the turkens were quite immature when integrated they have been intimidated and it may take a while before they stand up for themselves. Provide a second feeding and watering place for them.
