    Mine seem to get there ater 12 weeks. Maybe a bit later (16 weeks) for the last of the fuzz.

    I want to say the meat turkeys went baldy sooner than the heritage types.

    Quote:The boys tend to get balder quicker too I believe.

    I have four standard bronze who are 10 weeks old. They've lost a lot of their hair but aren't quite totally bald yet.

    Yeah 2 of 3 of my bronze babies are losing quite a bit of the ol baby fuzz and they are just 8 weeks old so I am guessing in the next couple weeks they will be baldies lol
