    OK, I need some info here. Found some local people selling naked neck chicks (turkens). They claimed they could sex the chicks by looking at their wings...said the females have 3 rows of feathers while males have less. Is there any truth at all to that? I was hesitant to believe them, but I bought two anyway to stick under a hen I had that insisted on trying to set.
