I have some turkey chicks that are a month old and they still have their feathers. I was wondering when they will start to lose them? I'll miss their feathers since it is soft to pet and they loved to have their necks pet. Two of them will puff their self up like a big Tom when they get jealous that I'm giving another one attention and not them. Also at what age can you tell the males and females apart. I know I have 2 out of 5 that are males from them showing off but I don't know about the other ones. It was the cutest thing when my first one started to puff up. He would do it after he ate his grass and he would walk over to my hand and get on it and then try to take a bath on my hand. Have no clue why he thought he needed to take a bath on it but it was so cute. They are the giant white turkeys unluckily since they won't be breeding and my boyfriends dad is going to eat the males which the biggest ones are the most friendly and tame.
