    Wiggy is around 5 weeks of age. What do you all think, girl or boy? Anyone with experience with turkens and what type of demeanor they have? I operate a rescue/sanctuary for special needs birds, and can only keep the physically challenged or very small roos because most of mine are at a disadvantage. Able-bodied hens I need because it seems I have quite a few roos so am hoping Wig is a girl.

    Honestly, I don't know if they are all this difficult but my two were almost impossible to sex. I can usually sex my chickens extremely early. My Turkens had to get almost big enough to eat me before I finally decided they were, indeed, girls. Good luck. She is adorable!!! Oh, and not that it helps after saying all that, but to me, she looks VERY girly. [​IMG]
