I'm not good at breeds, but they look like hens. How old are they?
I am guessing the brown as a hen and other one as a Tom.

Then probably a male. My female's face gets red when excited, but her snood doesn't really get longer. My male's gets really long, but he's an adult.
Then mine is pair. One is confirmed Tom and the other one is hen. Can you tell me what breed are they? I am new and I don’t know anything about turkeys. Thanks

They are a hen and a tom. The breed is really easy, they are the breed Turkey. All domestic turkeys are of the breed Turkey. The APA recognizes 8 different varieties of turkeys and they are many more varieties that aren't currently recognized. The variety that they are is questionable. The hen appears to have some bronze in her but there is something more than just bronze. The tom is either a mix or possibly a Calico or a Sweetgrass.

You can learn a lot about heritage turkeys by visiting Porter's Rare Heritage Turkeys.
