    At what age can you sex blue slates? We have 4 that are 5 months old and one of them is a bit bigger than the others and its head is a bit more red than the others, but other than that there is nothing that screams tom. [​IMG]

    You have one tom and two hens. The turkey in this picture is a tom. The uppermost turkey and the one at the bottom in your other photo are both hens and the turkey between them is the tom.
