Thank you im sorry I meant he or she is 9weeks old dumb phone put 12weeks it doesn't matter to me either way it's a pet but we just got 2 baby turkeys an im really hoping out of the 3 we get 2 females an one male I don't want 2 males an then them fighting so however it works I just want only one male so they can live happily here are the 2 babies. I've heard if you pick them up an their legs hang down they are female not sure if this is true tho because the one instantly just hang an the other doesn't know if it wants them to hang or hold them up haha. An well Franklin the white turkeys hang down but not sure if this only works when they are babies or if it's even true. I just love my turkeys an want them happy
Lovely baby turkey but your going to have to wait a bit longer before anyone can tell the sex of your turkey. You will be able to tell at 3 months if you have a boy or a girl.
What are you hoping for??

That particular method has no merit at all. If done improperly as some sites say to do, it can be harmful to the turkey.

I have 6 Heritage Bronze. 2 toms 4 hens. They are pets too. I dearly love them. They are my first turkeys. They are 5 months now. Hmm I never heard about the wing thing. I have done this method with chickens. 😁 one will demand to be turned over the other will just chill out on its back in your hands.

So just picking them up can hurt them? I'm not talking about venting them or anything just picking them up
