    This is my Turken, I thought it was a hen, then I thought it was a rooster, now I keep hoping it is a hen cause my DH wants to cook it.

    I received a turken chick with my order of surprise chicks. I'm so hoping it's a girl, DH thinks they are just to ugly. Oh I think the little one is just so ugly you have to love it. It's an odd ball already and roo or hen it's a keeper, [​IMG]. Good to see a big of one as they grow. I've only seen them in the catalog never in 'person' or 'chicken' rather until now.
