    I am getting a hen turkey for my lonely tom and I would like to get her one of those hen saver apron things so she doesn't get too beat up... do they make them in turkey size?????

    I am sure if you ask, the maker of the hen aprons would make a turkey sized one! You will likely have to provide some measurements of your hen, to make sure it is made to fit her [​IMG]

    You may not need one. I would wait and watch. If you see the beginning of damage then get one but I doubt you'll have a problem. I had six toms and two hens and they had no feather damage.
