thanks very much to everyone for the info and advice.
very much appreciated, think I know what i'm going to do now. just a waiting game for the next batch of poults to hatch. fingers crossed.
I don't know if i should start a separate thread for this but I wonder if anyone could tell me, why are some of my Bronze turkeys a silver/steal coloured, is this a normal variation or is it more likely that a non bronze turkey has sneaked in some where?
It looks like it could be a Narragansett hen which could mean that the bronze turkeys you are getting are coming from a source that is not pure bronze.
