    I'm thinking hen too, although am not certain - how old is this bird?

    Quote:I have 6 turkeys. 3 are 12 weeks and 3 are 8 weeks.
    2 of the older birds were displaying at 8 weeks but now only one acts like a jake (strutting and fanning), none of the younger ones are doing any of this (they are housed separate). what are clues to tell the sex?
