Mine get bald chests from rubbing against fences and being stupid. As much as we love our turkeys, I have to tell you, THEY ARE A French fry short of a full meal deal!
I go by the tails they are ratty and half there during the molt, then a short beautiful one comes out.
BTW, I had a small hen that was separated from the flock the other day in a paddock. She was pacing back and forth against the fence screaming and crying because the flock left her. The stupid part comes in, because the gate was wide open, she just had to walk 3 more feet south on her pace to go out the gate.
