How can I tell of my BR is a Hen or Tom?
Can you post a pic?
These pics are not to great , sorry I just took them on my phone
I posted a couple of pictures were you able to view them?
I looked at them but have no idea.Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge will chime in.
How old is your BR? Looks to me to be a hen. Alot easier to tell when you have a group of turkeys, and you can spot the differences in the sexes.
Females have alot less carnuncles(bumps on their necks, and a lighter complextion, not has bright blue or red. Also hens tend to have thinner shanks.
I'd say hen judging from the size of the snood. How old is it? Does it strutt any?
5months. When we hold the hens the turkey will puff up her feathers all over and her tail feathers even come up. Then he will gently peck at the hen after we put her down! Struing I am not to sure.
I am a new own of the chicken, turkey world.. Any suggestions anyone has will be much appriciated and helpful!
