Is this a turkey beard?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Found this on my standard bronze this weekend, it's on his breast.  At first we thought it was a burr, but it looks like it's attached to his skin.  I think he was picking at it.  Otherwise he seems happy and healthy.  Is he growing a beard??  He's about 4 months old.

Yes that is the start of his beard.
