Is this a juvenile male or a female?

    My husband and I decided to save a turkey for thanksgiving.

    We wanted to save a male, we were assured this is a male, but I'm kinda sure it's a female.

    We're naming her Catrina if she's a girl and possibly Wilbur if male[​IMG]

    If you look at its breast feathers you can see that the lower edge of them is a light color. She is a hen.
