    My class had 4 donated eggs hatch about 2 and a half weeks ago. One is a Turken, I'm thinking a male, hoping anyway! One is a fluffy white beauty we named Show Off because he/she poses for the camera. The other two are some kind of mixed odd looking birds with large feathers on their heads. One of them has 5 toes on one foot but the other foot has 4 or they are hiding from me.
    Turk the Turken has a white beard and a really bright orange comb and fantastic eyes:

    4 stooges and a Puddy:

    I'm hoping the Turk and the white are males, the other two I wouldn't know where to start guessing!

    Thank you, I can't help but notice your avatar looks a lot like Puddy when the chicks mistake his tail for a catapillar!

    Turk and Show Off are terrific! I could just squeeze Turk, and I'd love to cuddle Show Off. The mohawk chicken is cute in a funny sort of way, and the afro chicken has me laughing tears! Thanks for sharing. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Turk is quite a character, when he and Wooster get together it's hilarious. I think his wings look odd though, like they are on upside down!

    Could the White headed ones be part Polish?

    Yep!!!
    A Male POLISH has really pointy feathers on his head too...so the one with the cotton ball head is most likely a girl.

    Show off could be a Sultan.

    And I'm pretty sure that Turk is a guy.

    OH and I forgot, we have some more little eggs in the bator that came from the fellow we got the 4 stooges from. He has quite an assortment running around his property, evidently from what he says, he just calls places like McMurray's and gets whatever strikes his fancy and they all run around together.
