This actually looks male to me and is a little dark for a full blooded Narragansett. The snood looks enlarged and lots of caruncles (I know that's spelled wrong). We have 3 males and one female. At 5 months, he should start gobbling soon, if it is a boy.

Thanks! I really hope it's a hen and not another tom. I hope for a hen more than I hope for a pure of any variety. I actually have a slate tom that is a whole month younger than it and he is the same size if not bigger. He is also gobbling and strutting already. I also have a black tom that is the same age and he is very much a tom, constantly strutting and gobbling. That is the largest/longest the snood ever gets, and the hair on the top of the head doesn't seem to be going away . For those reasons I am hopeful it is a hen. It has not strutted nor gobbled and is coming up and 5.5 months of age.

I am raising 30 Narrangansetts this year . Some of them are around 5 months and I should say that the one you have should definitely be a female.
If you have other turkeys with it, it should strut or gobble.

Look at the breast feathers. See how they have white edges? Hen. Narragansett. Looks pretty pure to me.
