First Time Turkey Venture - Pencilled Palms - Page 2

I went and looked at my blue red bronze tom. Body color looks the same. But from what I could see in the side pic of your tom tail looks like it has barring. My toms tail is solid with the blue band.

Macy look just like a narri. So that one I will stick with.

Yes, he does have faint barring on the tail feathers. That's what throws me off. Still hard to tell I know, but can't get a good photo in the daylight, will have to wait until this weekend.

But according to Porter's the Blue Red Bronze does have slight barring. http://www.porterturkeys.com/blueredbronze.htm

I just went and looked at it. His does have the barring in the tail.

So that makes me 90 percent sure that's what your tom is.

I like them all and crossing over varieties to see color patterns emerge is pretty cool.

Congrats again.

Thanks! I am certainly looking forward to seeing what poults will look like.
