    I don't know turkens that well. They seem large for that age but, then I don't know what the parents were like. In the 3rd. photo the bird looks scarlet red along the cheeks. I don't know if that means anything.

    Otherwise I would say none of them are screaming cockerel, at this age.

    What's weird is, that's the one I'm concerned about and for that very reason. The other one has these gorgeous darker feathers and seems very colorful, so now I'm starting to wonder about it too. I have a black one that has no alarming traits though. The other two in there with them are Easter eggers.
