    Most recent pics. If the breeder told me the right age, they should be 3 1/2 mo. I think they are about 2 1/2 mo.

    Given the way the toms are losing their head feathering I think 3.5 months is about right.

    Royal palms?

    I agree, about 3 1/2 months. No way does the first pictures look less than 2 months.

    Yeah I would say in the first pics 2 months would have been about right, mine are 10 weeks now and are just starting to get bald heads. I have bronze not Royal Palms but I would think the timeframe is about the same for head feathers dropping

    Yep, they are Royal Palms.

    Thanks y'all for the age guesses. These are my first turkeys so I really have no idea what I am looking for on the body as far as age goes. They are definitely not chickens. But they are starting to grow on me and are finally getting a bit more tame.​
