    I have one Royal Palm turkey poult that is 2 1/2 months old. I need to get a second turkey. Is "Christmas" a hen or a tom?

    Appears to be a hen, looking at the feathers going up the back of the neck to the head.. [​IMG]

    I was thinking hen, but I am TOTALLY new to turkeys, so I wasn't sure. Thanks!

    Looks like a hen but too early to be 100%.

    I can't see the head/neck or snood, because the pics are too far away or blurry. I know how hard it is to get good pics though...
