    We have 3 turkens, but this one has me stumped.

    10 weeks. We have a black one that is also a little questionable.

  5. Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I didn't realize Turken cam in more than one color. [​IMG]

    That's pretty red for 10 weeks. Though I am unfamiliar with the breed as far as size goes. Probably still to young to tell saddle feathers, but a standing side shot would be good. I would venture a guess as cockerel at this point.

    Ok, I tried to get a shot of all 3. It's a little hard to see through the coop wire. Pretty positive the one on the right is a pullet.

    http://chickensforbackyards.com/ This hatchery sells Turken, and there is only if a minimum of 3! Good prices too! I got my chicks from this hatchery, and they all arrived happy and healthy! They sexed my chicks correctly.
     
  10. Yes, I believe you are correct... 2 boys and 1 girl. Big difference when you see them side by side.

    Yesterday, I smiled a few times thinking about your boys' funny hair do's, the black one in the background of your first 2 pics! [​IMG]
