Abstract With the upcoming ban on beak treatments in the Netherlands alternative measures have to be found to prevent injurious pecking behaviour in turkeys. The measures that are successful for chickens do not seem to have a lot of effect in turkeys. In this report the natural behaviour of turkeys has been reviewed to get more insight in the causes of injurious pecking in turkeys. This insight is used to find possible solutions for preventing injurious pecking in turkeys.
