    Blind(?) chick saved from being cannibalised please help

    This year has been a crazy year for brooding. I currently have two hens fighting over a clutch they had sort of shared for a while up to hatch day. This is where the story begins I guess. There had been several eggs left unhatched by the time the ladies were up, which isn't unusual. But when I...

    Hi, finally thought i'd introduce myself

    This is my third "batch" of chickens. I have to move a lot so I always end up selling them or giving them away. I'm hoping I can keep these ones. I currently have 22 birds in total. 2 Emden geese, 3 turkeys, 2 muscovy ducks, and the rest are various chickens. Americaunas, Buff Orpingtons...

    Around 3 month old Turken just died

    (This chicken was a hen, just wanted to let you all know) He actually died while I was writing a post about his condition. I'll describe what I can remember here. I began noticing his abnormal behavior yesterday. He began acting quite sticky, lagging behind his flock and not foraging like...

    Naked-Neck chick's neck is peeling

    I don't know their exact age. I got 6 chicks from Rural King about 3 or so days ago (as of 1/15/20). I've been holding one of the 'Turkens' in my lap for a while and I just noticed that its neck is peeling. Is this normal? Should I get some sort of cream for it? Or will it go away?

    Naked neck/turken and Rhode Island Red gender

    Can anyone please help me determine the sex of these 3 chicks? I was sold them as pullets but I’m uncertain. Thank you!

    When to re-home?

    I have never re-homed a roo before. Never needed to. At this point, I still don't, but if it comes to that later- When? How? Where? I know there is a forum on here for that. But I just need a little info from people who are more experienced. I have three male turkens that are one month-old...

    Another One Sprouts a Comb

    My turkens Disco and Butch hatched 5 little ones and gifted the flock with 5 little turkens. Within a couple weeks it was clear that I had two boys, Oswald and Cornelius, I assumed the other three were pullets. It has dawned on me now that I have three cockerels and two pullets instead. One had...

    Comb!

    My little turkens are just under 3 weeks old, and one little fella already has a telltale comb! I really need to get pictures of all the precious little ones. For now, I'm marveling at this little comb... (Ignore the mess. Had to bring the little ones into the garage temporarily while I fixed...

    Fugly Farm

    We raise chickens for dual purpose. Our first flock was just a few layers, but we added some larger birds to start breeding for meat as well. Then I saw a Turken and did a double take. I thought someone crossed a turkey with a chicken; I wanted a dozen! They were so ugly they were cute...

    Hatched a Turken 5 weeks ago and trying to determine sex.

    About 5 weeks ago we hatched our first egg. It was a surprise breed.... SURPRISE: Turken! although I’ve recently found out there are Turken Bantams as well, I don’t know the distinction at this age. Anyway, my urgent matter at this stage is to figure out the sex. We live in a “No Rooster”...

    Depression or what?

    I am not sure if this is the right category for this question, because it may be considered a more behavioral thing, but... Anyways I have a turken, aka naked neck chicken, I got her at the end of March, or early april, either way she is only a few months old and not laid her first egg yet. I...

    Climate Change Chickens

    I live in southern Arizona and while we have good weather 75% of the time, the dog days of summer can be brutal. I would like to take Turken stock and cross them with other heat tolerant, dual purpose (leaning toward egg production) breeds that have minimum heat related issues. Other than the...

    Broody turken, maybe?

    My Fifi has never shown any interest in using a nesting box before. She'll just lay eggs wherever she feels like it. Today, for the first time, she used a box. She's laid an egg and is refusing to leave the box. Could she be broody? She's 7 months.

    Days old Naked Neck with weird injury on head?

    I just purchased my first two Turkens two days ago, (a black and a white, straight run), and yesterday I noticed the black one has what looks like a raised scab-like injury(?) on the back of his bare head/neck. And today, it is darker and looks more like a wound than it did. The naked necks are...

    Fifi's first egg!

    I'm a proud chicken mama, lol. My al6 month old turken,Fifi (she's the turken in my profile picture) laid her first egg this week. Actually 2 eggs from her thus week, so she's putting her Australorp sisters to shame. They are all the same age and I think we've maybe gotten 1 egg from between...

    Turken Chick Can't Open Wings

    I have a turken chick that's about two days old and she can't open her wings because her skin had grown over the feathers and sealed them in place, and continues to do so at they grow longer. While all the other chicks have tiny feathers she only has one or two per wing because all the others...

    One Cockerel or two?

    I finally managed to get better pics of my mystery turken today. Comparing this one to the one we know is a cockerel, I’m leaning more towards pullet now. While both have crowns that are much bigger than our other turkens, this one is slightly smaller and less red. Still, we are new at this and...
