The Royal Palm was recognized in 1971 by the American Poultry Association. Enoch Carson is largely credited with the first Royal Palms in the 1920s coming from a mixed flock of Narragansett, Black, Bronze and Wild turkeys. The Palm is similar to the Collwitz, Black-laced White or Pied turkey that has been in Europe since the 1700s. The Royal Palm turkey is listed as critical on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's watchlist.
