Is there a way to sex chocolate turkey chicks/poults

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have one chocolate turkey tom and one chocolate turkey hen.  He struts around all day and she completely ignores him.  I have never seen them mate and so when she started laying eggs I had little hope they were fertilized.  But, I put her first three eggs in the incubator just to see, and all three were fertilized and all three hatched.  2 have the same color markings on the head and the third has a different color marking on the head.  I was wondering if that was a way to tell male from female chicks with chocolate turkeys.

They are cuties.

I couldn't tell mine by color but didn't look that close last year.
