    This is my only hatch from my turkey eggs. I believe this is a tom. He is 3 months old today. Can another confirm sex with the pics attached?

    Thanks! That's the way I was leaning. I read a lot were females will display too. So, I wasn't sure 100%.

    Yes, females will display also and they can even have a beard although it is typically a smaller than normal beard, but a female's snood never gets as big as that of a tom.

    The lady I got the eggs from said he looks to be a mix of he Sweetgrass and Narragansett. Thought I had SG eggs but he seems to mix. He is a sweetie and I have enjoyed having him.
