picked up 6 turken hatchlings back in September - not sure of the sex of them but one looks ...not like the others. Almost 3 months old now. No crowing yet,but ...I’ve uploaded a few closeups of her/him-and of the other turkens we got at the same time. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you can safely assume you've got a handsome boy there. Turkens are great chickens.
Agree with Table4Six. The white bird with black/gray markings is a cockerel. The gold bird in the first picture with him is a pullet.
uh oh! The other white one with the Golden is another bird all together! The crown wasn’t quite as pronounced or red, so wasn’t sure if it was a roo or not. You think this one is a rooster as well?

No, I was saying it was a pullet, which is a female under the age of 1 year old. Sorry for the confusion. They are nice looking birds.
