    Help, my one year old narragansett turkey is missing his chest feathers!
    We have two hens and one tommy. They are locked up at night for protection and let out to roam and forage on our farm all day. This past two weeks we've noticed our tom is missing all the feathers on his chest! He's beautiful otherwise and displays all the charteristics of a great turkey. He's covering his ladies and giving us fertile eggs to incubate, but we can't figure out whats up with his chest... he's only one, could he be molting already? He just reached maturity...
    Any ideas are very welcome. Thanks :)
