I got these two beauties as egglets from Miss Jayne. I am 100% sure Tiberious is a Male. He has strutted since he was a few weeks old.
Nibiru is my problem. We go back and forth. I am back to thinking girl again. They both have black tips on their feathers.

I will post both of them and ya'll can help me decide.
They are close to 6 months now.

They spar back and forth, which makes me think boy. But Ts snood is getting longer this week where Ns is not for the moment anyway.
There is not a lot of size difference either when side by side.

I had one that I thought was a female for a long time.Then my daughters ag teacher came by so I asked her how to tell and she picked up the bird and flipped it over and felt in the middle of its breast bone and said "ITS A BOY!" she said you can tell by the beard coming out under the feathers. It was like the turkey heard her and started to strutt the next day!
