    These are my two broad breasted bronze turkeys, they are approx. 15-16 weeks old. This is my first time raising turkeys and don't have a clue on their sex.

    They both look like hens to me. At that age, males should have much larger snoods and caruncles (the snood is the bump on the forehead and the caruncles are the bumps on the neck. A tom would be substantially larger than a hen by that time as well. They should also be gobbling if they were males.
