Hen turkey

These are female turkeys, usually weighing from 8 to 16 pounds. On the other hand, tom turkeys are males, usually weighing from 18 to 32 pounds. Hen turkeys used to offer more white meat in the past. But with today's selective breeding, both hen and tom turkeys offer a high ratio of white to dark meat.
