    [​IMG]I am close to positive this is a hen. Due to all the prominate white in her feathers and other hen traits I see. Just has bigger fleshy bumps than I've seen in alot of hens and her snood looks a little longer than some too. She does a have.a very short beard which you have to dig.in her feathers to even see and I know people and have seen hens with this before. To me if she was a tom her feathers wouldn't come so far up on her head and her snood should be alot bigger for her current size. These are my first 3 turkeys so I'm new to the turkey game. Input would be greatly appreciated.

    A picture is the only way for us to really tell.

    I would say this is a late developing boy. The snood is much longer than what I usually see on a girl and that is quite a bit of a carunculated throat.
