The breed is Turkey. The variety may be a Red Bronze based on the brown feathers starting to show up in the tail.

The snood is awfully small for a tom but the bald head and the dark lower edges on the breast feathers are traits of toms.

Hens can and do strut also so strutting on its own is not an indicator of the sex. I will say that it is most likely a tom.
