Help w Sexing: Eight weeks old--He or a She?

Discussion in 'Turkeys' started by Chicken Keith, Oct 19, 2014.

  1. This is a Bronze Red (I think). I'm new to turkeys but I'm familiar with poultry: 25 chickens, & 3 peas. Can anyone impart some sexing wisdom?

    I would say Hen. Looks like Bourbon Red to me, I don't see bronze. Maybe someone with more experience with various breeds can tell you.
  3. You're probably right. I get the Bronze Reds and Bourbon Reds confused. Not a turkey expert here, but I am growing quite fond of them. They have the personalities I wished my peafowl had.
