    My son brought this little sweetie home July 1st he told it was about 1-2 weeks old but not sure. So Im guessing 10 weeks now????? Any input on age, breed or gender would be appreciated.

    If this is a recent picture, it is very small for 10 weeks or so. Here is a picture of mine at 10 weeks.

    Mine is a Blue Slate Tom/Jake, I don't think your is a tom, it looks more like a hen to me.

    I would go with Narragansett based on your pictures. If its really as old as you say, I would lean towards hen. Normally, by ten weeks the snood and caruncles are a little more developed. It does seem small for a turkey that's 10 weeks old, but it could be a really big dog crate? Are you feeding it high-protein feed? Turkeys won't grow well on chicken feed.
