    I wonder if you will get a red slate? I'm a novice at colors and am just starting to learn myself. Hopefully someone with more experience can chime in.

    [​IMG] That would look cool a red slate.. I am also new to genetics but it will be fun to see what all hatches this spring. [​IMG]

    I can't get them to load but If you go to www.portersturkeys.com and click various color combos you will be able to see some of their pictures.
