Bourbon Red Turkey

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Why doesn't my 9 month old Red Bourbon Tom Turkey have a white tail? It is red. His wings are the only part of him that is white. Is it because he is immature?

It most likely is because he is not a pure Bourbon Red.  Pictures will help.  There are a lot of turkeys that are sold as something that they are not.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.
