    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 always been an 'in-betweener'. Larger than the other girls but smaller than the other boys. I got my answer now.

    His name is Marla...

    (I often choose names before knowing gender, hence why my big girl is named Fred.)

    Photo update on Cornelius!
    He's going to break some hearts!

    I have a duck named Bob. I called her Tiny Bob when she was little, since she was very much littler that the others. As it became clear she was in fact a she, the name's stuck so it's still Bob...
