How old are they?

The snoods on both are rather small although the caruncles on the one on the right are big. If the one on the right is under 6 months old, I would guess a tom.

If they are older, I have had hens with bigger snoods that displayed and strutted just like a tom.

A mature tom would have a snood that will cover his bill and extend 3" to 4" below it.

Not sure exactly how old as we inherited them with the property but at least a year old from what I’m told
