Male or Female?

Discussion in 'Turkeys' started by roostersandhens, Sep 19, 2014.

  1. I might rescue these 2 turkeys, but only of they are females.
    I've never actually met the turkeys, but from the pics the white one looks like a female.
    The white bird in the pics below is a turkey, the other birds are chickens. The bird to the right in the first pic is the other turkey


    This is the other turkey:

    I don't know their ages or their breeds. But the second one looks kinda like a young version of my turkey, named Miss Turkey:

    If you know their breeds or age you can let me know, but but what I really need to know is the gender.
    Thanks so much!!!

    In my opinion, they're still too young to tell gender. I can usually tell by their snoods (the bump above their beak) before anything else, and theres just not much to go by at this age. Sorry I couldn't be of much help, but I'm pretty sure that'll be the general answer you'll get from most on this forum.

    Good luck!

  3. The person who got them was told there was a 10% chance they'd be male, the farmer or whoever she got them from, said he thought they were girls
