Male or female?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
5 1/2 month old turkey, I've been assuming that Gravy is female, but lately she's been puffing out and fanning her tail at the chickens (the other turkeys that I bought with her didn't make it past a month...I got a free rhino virus bonus with their purchase...grrrrr...Gravy had it also but managed to survive). Can anyone tell from looking if Gravy is boy or girl? My first time owning a turkey and not sure!
