Mystery turkey pair, any idea what they are?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So, I bought this pair of turkeys at an auction a few days ago. The box was labeled as "tiger bronze pair". However, all the photos I find online of tiger bronze are of turkeys with black breast/wings/sides. As you can see, these two are penciled just about everywhere. The closest matches I've found are penciled palms and red penciled palms. But they're much redder than the penciled palms, and much darker and more marked than the red pencilled palms. Anyone have any guesses?

They look like a red version of a Narragansett, they are very pretty. Have you've checked Porter turkeys website to see if anything looks close.

Closest I've found for the male is either golden phoenix http://www.porterturkeys.com/goldenphoenix.htm or pencilled fall fire http://www.porterturkeys.com/MPencilledFallFire.jpg 

 

The female maybe calico? http://www.porterturkeys.com/FCalico.jpg
