Turkeys mating with chickens


In the Brooder
Jul 23, 2016
I have two tom turkeys just coming to maturity. Today I saw one mating with one of my chickens. I have read that they can hurt a hen due to their larger size. My question is should I purchase a turkey hen to save my chickens or will the boys fight over a turkey hen? The turkeys are purely pets. Thanks.
One turkey hen would be overbred by the toms. Separate them from the chicken hens before they injure them.
They'll crush the hens to death if you don't pen them up or get them some turkey hens, like 3 or 4 for two toms.
