It might sound like common sense, but wash your hands before and after you handle any raw poultry.
If your turkey isn't thawed out, don't freak out: you can cook a frozen turkey as it just take longer. It does need to be completely thawed if you're frying your turkey - if it's frozen, it could cause a dangerous grease fire.
