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.

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.
