Thanks! But yes, one of the reasons I'm getting more turkeys is because one of my bronze turkey poults is being put down soon due to leg and infection problems sad

Very pretty!!!
What age are they?  I am just curious because I have 5 RP that are suppose to be 2 months.  I think they are kinda small but thats the age I was told.
If I had to guess (again this is just a guess) I would say the bigger of the 2 is a tom and the smaller a hen.  One of my five is much larger than the other and seems to be the "protector" of the flock.  I am hoping he is my tom.  We will see.  here are a few pics of mine. 
Enjoy your turkeys!!!

I forget what age the seller said but I think mine are 6-7 weeks old. I think your poults look about the same age as mine....they are very cute by the way smile
