    She is 12 weeks old. She has been consistently 2+ weeks ahead of the other pullets in developing a comb, wattles, and how red they are. Tail feathers are round, not noticeably different than the other pullets. She's my only turken, so no way to compare there. The pullets were ordered from Murray MacMurray.

    I'm leaning towards it being a pullet.

    I'd guess pullet.

    Thanks all. I was hoping with the early comb that she would be a he - we lost our cockerel to Marek's last week. Will have to figure out how to safely bring a new one into my contaminated flock.

    I really lucked out with the coloring on the turken. She's a pretty girl.
