    We are new to this, but these guys are 10 months old and we were sure it was 2 hens and 2 toms. But their showy behaviour lately and what appears to be fighting....makes us question if they are all toms!! According to everything we've read anyway. I'm 100% the one on the right is a tom, the other 3 are questionable after a blog I just read that showed images of toms and hens.

    Please help! [​IMG]

    It looks like all toms, but I can't see the 2nd from the right's head. If it has fuzz, I'd say hen. If all bald them tom.

    I actually just went out and looked again this morning and they have much bluer heads and are definitely all toms. Sigh. I was excited for eggs soon.

    Turkey dinner anyone?
