    I ask cause my young turken's neck is turning red and every time one of my other chickens touch it she squacks like when ever you touch a person with sunburn

    I myself have a Turken too. And yes, I'm told they can sun burn. I put my chicks outside, where there is plenty of shade, but when she goes out at first, she gets really red like you stated too. Keep an eye on her.
