    Well thanks to BYC I am 99% sure the brown one is a rooster. The gray one still just looks like a hen to me, but I think thats just wishful thinking at this point.
    And of course my baby turken just has to be a rooster as well. He's already getting tail feathers.

    Not necessarily, pullets tail feathers grow faster then cockerels. There is still hope [​IMG]

    Whew. Well there's a slight chance that the turken is a pullet then. It definitely got tail feathers sooner than the others. Although I know nothing is certain at that age.

    Does that little turkin have eyelashes or is it just the picture and the way its eyes look. Sooo pretty!

    I swear it has eyelashes. It has the biggest most beautiful eyes.

    The gray one is a girl? Even with that huge thing on its head? I would love for that one to be a girl.

    Quote:how old is it? To me it looks like a girl-is there a better clearer side shot-whole body??? Pullets can have large combs:)

    They're only 7 weeks. The gray one is 1 day older than the brown one.
    I don't know if these are clearer, but hopefully it will help.

    Here's a video of them bathing I think. I don't know if it will help since she's not really standing up.
