    Just lookie at him, all puffed up. [​IMG] He is only 7 weeks old, and already strutting his stuff! Even made the low " thump" sound...like a little drum!!!

  2. Looks like a tom. His little snood is starting to dangle, too. :) Also has a chunkier skull (my females look a little more refined).

    My hens will display like that too, tho.

    Looks tom to me, since it's head's so big. I've also had hens that would strut like that. I love turkeys [​IMG]

    My neighbor has 9 turkeys, so I pretty much believe this one to be a tom. [​IMG]

    If he thunked I would definitely go with Tom, I have never heard any of my girls do that when they strut.
