These are not-quite-three-month-old Narragansetts.
WOW what camera are you using
Beautiful, are you going to eat them or are they pets?
Camera is a Sony Alpha-100. The model they have out now is better than this one. I love the thing. I took these with a 300m lens, which is my favorite lens for outdoor shots.
The toms, all but two, will be eaten. We'll try to breed our own crop for next year.
Mine are about half your age, do the ones with the little bumps on their heads signal a tom? Or do they all have that?
You have very pretty birds!
Quote:They all had the bumps. We didn't start to get really good indicators of gender until they were at least 8 or 9 weeks old. Between two and three months, it gets obvious. Hang in there!
My favorite is the last picture Ninja gorgeous!
Ninja between the turkey cathedral and the pics, I'm all envious!
But we went to the Lebanon TN fair and Laura fell in love with some juveniles so next year I'll have Bourbon Reds to take pictures of!
How many poults did you buy? Or did you do eggs?Did you lose any?
Enquiring minds want to know...
I also want to know where and how you brooded them and what you liked and would change about what you did.
The bump on their head is the snood. Males have a large snood and can extend and retract it.
NP - awesome looking turkeys!
They are beautiful!!!
