This movie shows courtship and copulation in the turkey. The male strutts around the hen, untill she is ready for copulation and crouches. The male mounts her and treads, and afterward taken up strutting again. The hen gets up, shakes, and walks away. In some cases the hen crouches first, but gets up when the male attemps to mount or to tread; she even might try to hide underneeth the male. Copulation finally occurs when the hen remains sitting. With a male flock, only the top ranking male can copulate successfully. Lower ranking males will try to mount, but the highest ranking member of the flock will prevent actual copulation. In cases where the social hierarchy is not well established, lower ranking males may interfere with the copulation of the top ranking bird. Behaviour elements shown in this movie: drr, yelp, ngg, luck, singing, upright, T-display, strut-posture, strut, treat, hiding, mouning, treading, crouching, body-shake, and squeaking.
