    I think they all look like toms, but i am not a turkey expert, but i think it is that the hens have more feathers on teh head than the toms.

    I forgot. If it helps the first is a White Midget and the next two were to be Royal Palm and bourbon red. They are all about 2.5 to 3 months old. also two of them seem to be getting a flap of skin under the neck. You can kind of see it in one of the pictures.

    Man, I hate to be the spoiler here but, those look like hens to me.
    Of course, it's just a guess, but I usually can tell with good accuracy on my own at a pretty young age. Toms also seem to be more "blockier" than hens.
    Picture one is a toss up.
    This is a nine week old Tom. I don't have a definitive reason why I know this is a Tom but, it is.

    Pic 1 looks like a possible tom to me, the other two I think are hens.
