I currently have a couple of 2 month old turkeys; an Oregon grey, and a Narragansett. I'm pretty sure they are both hens because neither has strutted, displayed tail feathers, or gobbled and they are very friendly with each other. I'm wondering if one or both might be toms who are just late to the game? What's the normal age for turkeys to show signs of being male or female?

If you really know turkeys and really pay close attention, you can make very good educated guesses at 2 months old but I normally know on mine by 3 months old and for sure at 6 months old.
