    It would be helpful to know what their ages are. From what I can see pics #1 & 3 are toms. The middle one may be a hen if she's over five or six months of age.

    Look down the back of their necks. Hens tend to have a small line of feathers, while toms will be bare. At 4 months it can be hard to tell just from pics.

    Sorry to hear about your turkey [​IMG]

    I'd have said that one and three are boys too! Difficult to say with the middle one, judging by the snood and what you can see of the neck, I'd say hen although it's difficult to say from the photo.
