Yes. In fact, there is no specification for the neck to be specifically from a chicken, and it suffices to be from any bird including turkey. Those accustomed to use the neck of a chicken do so in order to avoid using the meat of an animal so it not be similar to the Pesach sacrifice. Hence, it makes no difference if its the neck of a chicken or of a turkey.
