    Anyone happen to know what breed of Turkey these are??? And possibly an age??? Sex even?? Almost kind of remind me of voultures but they do have some like tan speckling on their tail feathers some.. Any thoughts would be helpful cause they are our first Turkeys..

    I agree with Black Spanish. Look about 3 months, but jard to tell. First pic the one on the right looks boyish, the other looks girly. Just a guess though. I see the snood sticking up on the one on the right though. still could be a female, but looks male to me [​IMG] Nice looking birds [​IMG]

    Better light will help. The 2 on the fence looks like sunset and the bottom one is real dark. Get a good close up in the sun. black spanish is a fine color if you wan't black turkeys. I have always liked them but never owned one. I would have some of every color but my feed bill is high enough without them.

    They're worth putting meat on the table. Don't think they'd get spurs at 3-4 months...more like 5-6+ months before spurs would show up. The larger bird is very likely your male. My male is almost twice the size of my female. I could tell my male from my female early. The female just looked like a female, very feminine. [​IMG]
