    I have 3 turkens that are about 10 weeks old. 2 of them have really red skin around face and the other does not.

    Is this any indication of the sex of these chicks ?

    It can be, but girls can get red faces too. Also it sometimes depends on the color of bird- girl buffs can have redder faces than black girls.

    Look for super shiny and pointy feathers in the cap or on back & wing bow. Often on a buff or reddish boys, the back and part of the wing are a much darker shade than rest of body while girls often are almost evenly colored.
