So I have one lone Red Bourbon turkey. I had purchased two but one unfortunately didn't make it shortly after coming home, they supposedly had a rough ride (came from TSC type store). Any who, they are my very first turkeys. I've had almost every other type of fowl but was always told how ugly and mean they are (wrong, so far). She's turned into a little sweet heart....that's decided she's a goose, and gets very jealous when the goslings snuggle in my lap.
I'm pretty sure she's a she, which brings me to a quick question. She seems to be rather small? Like I had always assumed turkeys got kind of large rather quickly, though like I said I don't have much experience with them. She's about 5 ish weeks old now, the same age as they chicks I'm raising her and the goslings with...and she's the same size if not smaller.
So I was thinking that she may be female since she's seems petite, and honestly kind of feminine in behavior. For somewhat of a comparison, the goslings are only two weeks and the chickens behind her in the third photo are the same age. Opinions?
