  • Are there any discernible differences between male and female turkeys? shopping list
  • When it comes to commercial turkeys, weight is the best indicator of whether a turkey is a tom (male) or a hen (female), as there are no obvious visual cues for distinguishing the two once they reach the market. Representatives from Butterball, Plainville Farms, and Empire Kosher Poultry all said that their smaller turkeys (10 to 16 pounds) tend to be hens, while their larger birds (18 pounds and above) are typically toms. When in the 16- to 18-pound range, a turkey might be either a large hen or a small tom. shopping list
  • All of the turkey producers we spoke to agreed that there is no discernible difference in taste between toms and hens and that the age of the bird is what's most important when it comes to tenderness. Because the majority of supermarket turkeys are slaughtered when young (under 28 weeks of age), they are pretty tender—even the tom turkeys. shopping list

    My Sister had a pet Turkey for several years. It was the best watch dog. It would attack anyone it did not know. You never wanted to turn your back on him. That I learned the hard way. The first day that I met Tom I was pinned on the picnic table for the longest time, No one would get that darn turkey away from me, they were to busy laughing. He would go down the street and sit on the neighbors porch and would not let them outside they would call on the phone and say come and get your turkey but after getting to know Old Tom he was special. Like I said better then any old watch dog. I had forgot about Tom. It was fun remembering today.
    Thanks Sue

    I thought it was going to be some intriguing turkey recipe also. Kind of like how sex on the beach isn't really.

    it's fun to read other people's comments on this. I wasn't actually expecting to find anything on turkey sex here, I knew you weren't gonna go there. I thought it was a turkey recipe. Interesting facts, though, thanks!

    I'm ashamed of myself. I must say, curiosity got the best of me. Had to take a peek. I don't know what on earth I was thinking! (Tongue in cheek.)

    Great post my friend.

    And here I thought you were going to reference Barbara Kingsolver. According to her book, the instinct to mate is still there, but many turkeys have lost the knowledge on how to actually...well, mate.
