Tiger Bronze Turkey **More pics of Males feathers**

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I got a couple of tiger bronze turkey this year (from Porters) along with my Palms.   I was wondering if anyone had any idea on how to identify their genders (like the palms that have certain feather coloring "give aways").  The one is considerably smaller than the other, and I am thinking I have a pair?  Thanks for any of the input!  I am thinking the front is the male and the rear is the female.  The front one is almost double the size of the rear.  And the front one has a nice gold band in "his?" wing that the rear "female?" does not.  They are 2 months old, 1 week old.

Looking at this pic, I believe you're right.  Up front is the tom, and behind is the hen.  Lucky you!

Currently keeping a flock of 14 chickens, one rooster and 13 hens.  I have three Easter Eggers, three Golden Buffs, two Marans and six Buff Brahmas.  My hobbies are gardening, chicken keeping, and beekeeping.  I'm married with two sons, a step son and daughter, and two really cute grandkids!

Oh awesome!  Thank you!   It is definately a lucky deal, I have always been into the palms (I have blue and black) and these two were just for fun, but I think they have turned out beautiful.  I may have another breed to add to the pens big_smile

Thanks! Pretty birds. I was thinking the tiger bronze were supposed to have the lines in the tails though??

Thank you. Its the pencilling in the tail that gives them their name.  Porters has some nice feather pics on their website of individual feathers for a better look.
