    I have had 2 pet turkeys for about 2 yrs and the female was killed this morning by a dog. My son ad i are heartbroke. I want a new turkey female..but im not sure how to go about introducing the new small female to that huge tom of mine. Will he crush her??? any advice on this?

    You will need to keep them separated until the female is large enough to defend herself.
