    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I were both raised in Texas not far from where you are (Blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me). Definitely post on the state thread link that NorthFlChick left with you. Hopefully someone in your area can help you locate a turkey hen. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    You would do best to ask on the turkey threads. I don't know if the tom would accept a strange hen or fight her off. Birds can be strange that way. Turkeys may been careful integration like new chickens do.
