can I put frozen turkey mince in slow cooker?

Well, I suppose so, it would defrost, then start cooking, but could add more liquid to your recipe, and a little to the cooking time.
It would'nt take lot to defrost at room temperature though!

No. Too little cooking time required for minced meat, for a slow cooker.

I'd let it defrost enough so that it isn't a solid block .. but it should be OK to cook mince before it has completely defrosted in a slow cooker.

It would be safer to thaw the mince in the microwave first then put it in the slow cooker.
Placing a "block" of frozen turkey or any minced meat will retain the shape of the block.
Also cooking it from frozen takes a while and the temperature of the center of the meat will take some time to reach 165 degrees F so it may spend a longer time in the "danger zone"
But if the block of frozen meat is not real thick it might be alright. There is a difference between a 1/2 pound of frozen meat and 2 pounds of frozen.

You can do so, however, it is best to thaw the turkey before placing it in the slow cooker.

Um yes, why not? It'll just take longer to cook, good job it's a 'slow cooker'.
