What gender is this turkey?
Which one? They all defiantly look like toms... except for the hen to the very right.
Beautiful Red Bourbons!
The one in the center sorry.
That's fine. Beautiful birds!
From everything I've read if they gobble, or "display" or "strut" like that they are boys.
I would bet it is a hen. Notice the lack of coloring on her head. This girl, yes girl, did us the same way. I waited all year in 2010 to get fertile eggs from my pair of Royal Palms. I don't know how many eggs failed to develop. At the end of the year, we realized we had 2 hens.We got our girls a tom and this year we has lots of babies running around, but ....it is a hen.
Interesting! I've never seen a hen strut!
OP: Can you get a better picture of the head?
I still have this girl. Notice the lack of coloring on her head. She had us fooled for a entire year!
Fgf wins. It was a trick question I knew she was a hen but I haven't seen her strut until today, she was very irritated that I would not allow her to beat up my roo. She did this right after I pushed her away from him with my foot.
Wow! She looks so Tommish!!!
