    This is my first time raising a turkey. I got it last summer from a friend. Am I right to assume this is a girl? At what age are they full grown?

    It is a hen. They can put on weight for many years but are mature by 9 - 12 months.

    Ok thank you! She is right around there age wise so I guess she is pretty much full grown.
