hi, i am a first timie turkey owner. 2 BBW and one BBB. they are about 6 weeks now i think...here are some photos, i dont know what i am even looking for. i am cool with waiting, i just dont want them fighting and if i have to build something to seperate them, then i need to do it before it becomes a problem.

It'll be another few weeks before you can tell for sure. The boys will get big ol' floppy nose snoods and wattles before the girls do. Their legs will thicken up too. You don't have to worry about anyone fighting until they reach sexual maturity which is something like nine months but since you have Broad breasted turks you'll have processed them by then.

They will be in freezer camp before they start fighting.
broad breasted turkeys grow fast. I had a BBB tom, he weighed 50+ lbs and could barely walk.
