Okay, a few months back(around march) i got 2 turken chicks, 2 brahma chicks, and two jersey giant chicks from a local farm that buys chicks from a breeder and sells them. Unfortunately, we lost all but one turken cockerel and one jersey giant hen. They are now around 5-6 months old and the Turken is still SO SMALL. Is it possible he is somehow a bantam or are turkens just super small birds?? I can post pics in the comments if required (though hes not my biggest fan)

Also, could ya'll help sex these brahmas? I keep thinking cockerels for the lights, and hens for the two blue but they keep me on my toes. I put a picture of the two blues tails. Thanks!!

Brahmas look to be two blue partridge pullets and two light cockerels.
Can I see the Naked Neck? I doubt that he’s bantam, probably just a small boy, the Naked Neck bantams are very tiny.

Oops. I meant blue partridge.
I think the confusion here is that the Naked Neck is a pullet.

Okay so maybe you guys are right when we had all the pairs, we ended up with a cockerel and a pullet from each. I thought we lost the pullet but i guess i mistook them for each other lol sorry for the bad quality photos my phone sucks
