Royal Palm Turkey Hen fluff up??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have 3 royal palms. Was under the impression I had 2 toms and 1 hen. But yesterday the "hen" started fluffing up and fanning out her tail. Will hens do this? 2 were hatched last spring (the hen and younger Tom) Not sure how old my big Tom is. But there is a huge size difference huge between the 2 from the same hatch, another reason I thought I had a hen. Also she has no beard. Hope the pictures help.

All toms, sorry.

My animals were stolen by a family member and rehomed without my knowledge or consent. I was away for the weekend and they were supposed to be caring for them for me. I have no idea where any of them are at this point.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

You may want to post on the "Turkey thread," for more opinions or specific turkey information.  I know nothing about them.
