Turkey Breed ID

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, 

 

I bought this poult last year as a buff turkey but I'm not quite sure that's what he really is. I looked through pictures of other heritage breeds and can't really pinpoint what he is, short of being a mutt (a hansome one at that). I'm fairly new to turkeys and haven't bred them yet but hopefully he will produce some neat colored poults with his bronze lady turkey. Thanks y'all

 

I don't think he is a buff turkey because his tail is very detailed and tri-color and he is more of a grayish tan rather than "buff"

To little red for Blue Red Bronze. My guess would be Red Slate / Blue Winged Red Slate.

It is definitely not a Buff.  I have to agree with @austria89 that it looks like a Red Slate.
