    Hey guys. I'm new to turkeys and I wondered if you could help me sex the 3 that I hatched this spring?

    looking at the snoods, you have one male and two females. I think Marge is a boy. The other two appear to have very small snoods and that is how we sexed ours when they were little. Boys are a little bigger bodied and have bigger snoods. Hence, LARGE MARGE, is probably a healthy MARSHALL.
