    We plan on hatching out, sometime over the next couple months, some naked neck turken. Is it possible to sex these early, or will I have to raise them a few months before finding out? Thanks!

    I was able to sex mine (accurately so it seems) at 3-4 weeks. Same as other breeds- red face/neck and comb indicate it's probably a boy at that age. [​IMG]

    Here are a couple of 3-4 week old boy NN:
