    My 9yro son thinks that one of our 5 week old chickens is a turkey because of the sound he/she makes. [​IMG]

    All of them were suppose to be chickens, so I hope that we don't have a turkey.

    Also, at 5 weeks would a possible roo try to just on the backs of the other 5 week old chicks?? One of our black chicks that is looking more and more like a roo every day. I will try to post some new pics later.

    You'd know by now if it was a turkey, as it would look like Godzilla compared to your chickens! When they're in thier first week, it's hard to tell by size and coloring, but give them 3 to 4 days, and they start out-growing the chickens. Also, baby turkeys have an adorable little fuzzy knob on their foreheads, like they're trying to be unicorns.

    Well, he or she is NOT a turkey then. We are not even really sure which one makes the noise. [​IMG]
