    I have three turken chicks that are almost 6 weeks old. All three are brown with red skin. What colors should the legs be? One's legs are pinkish, one's is a bluish purple color, and one's is a greenish gray color. I bought these from our local TSC, so I assume they are purebreed. Any ideas what's going on with these. (Also, they are supposed to be pullets, but I think one is a roo.)

    I don't know about turkens, but maybe someone else does. With three totally different colored legs though... not so sure. However, if turken is defined as "naked neck" then it can be a mix. There should be a standard somewhere though I think if you can google "turken standard of perfectoin"... if it is an accepted breed that is. I am not well versed on this breed though.
