My duaghter picked out three turkins, in a bin of striaght runs. I am now worried that she picked all Roos. The white baby in the back may be a pullet because it has a slilghtly smaller comb, but I am not for certian. Any body else have a guess? I will find the other pic and post it here after I down load it to my computer.

I am actually not sure how old they are. They are almost totally feathered out. They have bald butts, so I can't tell what they are by looking at that end. and the only baby fluff is on thier heads. The only thing I think we can go by is there combs (I think) This is the first time having this breed. So I am not sure what to go by.Anyway I want every bodys best guess's ....I am curious to see how many people have the same guess as myself.

it is hard for me to tell without knowing about what age they are. I can tell you that around 4 or 5 months the roosters necks will turn bright red and the combs will be bigger and redder. If I had to guess right know not knowing there age I would say pullets. But this breed is not the easiest to sex. Enjoy them my family loves this breed.

I am thinking they are almost a month old... They were starting to get there feathers when we got them. Now the only pat of their body that is not feathered out is the bald areas and the tops of their heads around their combs. I love these sad looking like birds, the by far have more personality than all of the other breeds that I have combined.

I'd say they are around 6 weeks and all boys but I am notriously bad at sexing. Could you do pics of each individual in natural light?

I am afraid that all I have is roos, but since I have never had any until now I hope someone can maybe either confirm it or deny it.

Anyone? I know a lot of people dont get them because they are so homely looking. But  I will take any guess you guys have.
