    I have 3 royal palms. Was under the impression I had 2 toms and 1 hen. But yesterday the "hen" started fluffing up and fanning out her tail. Will hens do this? 2 were hatched last spring (the hen and younger Tom) Not sure how old my big Tom is. But there is a huge size difference huge between the 2 from the same hatch, another reason I thought I had a hen. Also she has no beard. Hope the pictures help.

    You may want to post on the "Turkey thread," for more opinions or specific turkey information. I know nothing about them.
