we raised this turkey from a chick... thought it was a hen so bought a Tom and now we can’t decide what it is.. lol... sis we mess up ??
If it is 4 months old, she is a hen. A tom will have much bigger caruncles on its lower neck. She does have a mohawk and other than a late developing tom, one at that age would have a bald head.

It is hard to see for sure but it does appear that there are light colored lower edges on the breast feathers. A tom with adult feathers will have dark colored lower edges on its breast feathers.
