She appears to be a mature Narragansett hen.  You really can't tell a hen turkeys age just by looking at her once she is mature.  My guess is she is at least 2 years old and possibly older.  Given proper care heritage turkeys can live well over 10 years.  In my experience their egg laying starts decreasing around 6 years of age.

 

The forum that you posted your previous question is one that is not normally frequented by turkey people therefore the lack of responses from the turkey people.  If posting a question other than medical emergencies or diseaes about a turkey, it is best done here in the Turkeys forum.

Good luck.

The first turkey on this thread looks like a chocolate Palm. The second turkey looks like a Pencilled Palm.
