I got a pair of turkeys, very young.
they've grown quite a lot, and I wanted to know if they were sexed right.
If they arent the right sex I'm allowed to trade for the right one.

First up:
Thanksgiving thinking Male (he's larger, but a lil bit older, and his face turns red a lot!):

Next:
Christmas... maybe female (smaller lil bit younger than male):

head:

tail:

4th:
Bertha supposed to be pullet was also supposed to be a barred rock, but is a cuckoo marans:

Last:
here is a picture with the tails of the two chickens and the turkeys are side by side:

Please help me now, because the person I bought them from said I could trade if any of them were wrongly sexed.
Thanks in advance,
Jenn

Both the chooks look like hens to me... as for the turkies, Thanksgiving is deffinately a Tom (male) and Christmas is deffinately a hen... My son says he wants to buy Christmas from you

he has two Royal Palm Toms and no hen...

Hope you enjoy... how old are they? She should start laying at around 7 months... she will find a inconspicous place... such as in brush, under stumps, bushes... she will find a spot that is safe where no one is able to see her... they produce a clutch of about 12-15 eggs sometimes maybe more..

Have fun and enjoy them.... Tes

Well if you let yours free-range... then you will have little ones whether or not you want them unless you find the eggs and take them.

Nope, we are in Virginia... oh well... he can wait til spring...
