My turken pullet Ivy is 16, nearly 17 weeks old. Yesterday evening I was just thinking that she would be my first turken to lay because her little comb - all an eight of an inch of it - was really turning red. That's all she had, 1/8" red comb. No wattles to speak of. This morning I go to check on them and Ivy's comb has sprouted up to about a 1/2 an inch and she suddenly has wattles. What gives? If I didn't know better I'd think that the nestbox I added day before yesterday had something to do with it. All the girls are showing interest in the box, but I know they are still to young to know what to do with it. And yes, Ivy is definitely a SHE.
