    We got this as an extra in a happy farm order we got for the kids. It had geese, ducks, turkeys and chicks in it. Then there was this guy....

    Its 4 weeks old now and is just as big as our turkey poults. [​IMG]

    Hello!

    I am by no means an expert however that looks like a white turkey chick. I found a photo I DO NOT OWN online. The only difference I can see right off the bat is their legs. Yours seem more yellow.

    Thank you! We actually have a white turkey poult but this one looked a little different. Thanks for the suggestion. I guess we are just going to have to wait a little longer and see what it grows into lol

    Its not a turkey. And I don't think its a guinea. I really think its a chicken, but its got a funny looking face. Definitely post pics in a week or so please.

    Could it be a white peachick? I've never owned turkeys or peas so I wouldn't know but that was my first thought. :) Good luck!

    The body does look like a turkey though.

    I will definitely keep you guys updated. It has always looked off compared to everything we have. Its also the friendliest bird we have ever owned
