    Turkey Lurkey is about 5 weeks old now. Is it too soon to tell? He's a bronze breasted. Thanks for your educated guesses!

    feel behind the bend in his leg for a jutting bone, it's like a bump on the bone. If it's there, its a he, if not wait a few more weeks and try again. So far thats worked as my sexer tester.

    I have a turkey lurkey also. It's a hen. But yours is really to small to tell right now. You just have to wait and see. [​IMG]
