    How old is she? This is my girl, who other than being white looks a lot like yours if that helps any.

    No snood, feathers going up her head, no beard, no big caruncles. I'm guessing no gobbling either, just whistling and yelps? I really really think you have a girl, but this is the only turkey I have so I'm no expert. [​IMG]

    Woodford is coming around a year old in May....if she is a hen when do they start to lay? She does not gobble, but when cats or anything comes around she will fan out, but in defense.

    Mine's the same age about, and hasn't started laying yet either. I think sometime in early spring we should be seeing our first eggs. [​IMG]
