    Probably no to many people have turkeys...hey it's hard to tell the age even on a chicken! But I tell you what...I have a 5 week old turkey and he is HUGE!! I think those babies are at least close to being 1 week old.

    I would guess between 2 and 3 weeks old. They are about the size of my standard bronzes that age. also the wing feathering is about the same.

    I am moving this to other poultry. The forum in general is for chickens. Anything other than chickens goes into other poultry and livestock etc catagories.

    I would say they are 3 to 4 weeks old. Do you know the breed?

    Probably a couple of weeks old. My turkeys were flying at a couple of weeks, out of the brooder. They sure love to fly! They aren't getting much distance, but they are always flapping and getting "lift off". Mine will need feathers trimmed on one side soon: I live in town and they can't be in my neighbor's yard.
    You'll be surprised at how fast they grow. Have fun.
