    This is the first time I've had turkeys...they are a pair of adults, and I've had them a little over a week now. The female is losing LOTS of feathers and I have no idea why. If it matters, they are in an enormous coop with a rooster and a hen. Thanks.

    They are going through their annual molt. My birds are all looking horrid. Bare backs, necks, no tails etc. Nothing to worry about. In about a month or so, they will be beautiful! [​IMG]

    I agree. Probably just molting.
