    Hello All! My turkens are 3 weeks old now and I was wondering if there is a way to tell who's a boy and who's a girl. A couple of them have combs starting from the top of their beak and up their forehead, but the others do not, or have them a lot smaller. My grandma always told me the only dumb question is the one not asked:rolleyes: Hope you can help and everyone have a great day![​IMG]

    This is what my turken cockerel's comb looked like at 18 days old:


    By the time he was a full four weeks old, there was no doubt that he was indeed a boy. Much larger, pinker comb than the others.
