Back in August, our dog brought us a turkey chick. We raised it with a new batch of day old chicks we had just received.
It's November now and the thing has decided to stay with our chicken/duck flock but I'm wondering if you all can tell me if it's a hen or tom?

Looks like a hen. In some states it's illegal to keep them without a permit, I don't know New Jersey laws though.

She's very friendly..or at least she was:

Last night, the wild in her came out and she decided to fly high up into the trees to roost: This morning she had no head :( RIP Turkey

In the Springtime, I'll try to find a pair of domesticated turkeys.
