    The older turk is around 4 months old.... he/she was the runt of 3 of my original flock (the other 2 flew the coup and were killed). The younger birds are about 3 months old. I am leaning towards the older bird being a hen since he/she was the runt but this is my first try at turks. Any info would be welcome. Thanks!

    I'm leaning towards Tom on the older one, the other two are too young and far away in the picture to guess, mine are around five months and I'm finally able to tell on mine.

    The older one looks to me like it has skinnier legs like a hen, in the second picture the younger one on the right may be a boy and the one on the left may be a girl. Just a thought though, they are kinda young to tell.
