    We have a set of Narragansett turkeys under 1 year of age, the female is biting at the neck of the tom. My older 1 year old set don't do that. What is she doing to him? Sexual harassment? LOL Please help us!
    Thank you

    He probably thinks she is a 'pain in the neck' to have around... LOL

    I'm sure it's just a dominance thing......my boys do that to each other..... you might just have a more controlling hen??
