    Hey there. I just got my first 2 turkeys. Wondering what type they are and how to tell a tom from a hen? One has a bump on its head and one doesn't, does that matter? Thanks! [​IMG]

    You might be right. The tom's will get a big snood on their beak. Most people can't tell the sex for about 3 months. You will start noticing different things. If they are a hen and tom then he will get a little bigger than her. Bigger feet, more neck skin. Possibly strut. Goodluck with your babies........
