    We have raised chickens for a while now. We have learned a lot about their behavior. But, this is our first time raising turkeys. I have a question. They are 4 weeks old and we have 4 of them. There are 2 of them that drop their feathers and dance for the 2 other ones for lack of better words. The other 2 will bump chests and peck at each other but I haven't noticed them dropping their wings. Does this mean the ones dancing for the others are Toms? All in all though, we are LOVING turkey poults ha ha! Thanks for any and all answers!

    I believe that both toms and hens will display, but @R2elk will know for sure.
