    I have three turken chicks that are almost 6 weeks old. All three are brown with red skin. What colors should the legs be? One's legs are pinkish, one's is a bluish purple color, and one's is a greenish gray color. I bought these from our local TSC, so I assume they are purebreed. Any ideas what's going on with these. (Also, they are supposed to be pullets, but I think one is a roo.)

    Hatcheries often deliberately mix their turken stocks(McM states this flat out) so don't expect color consistency. Leg color is due to various genetics has nothing to do with sexing, if you were asking/wondering.

    Leg colour on Red Nakednecks should be yellow.
