    I have (2) standard bronze hens. I just bought a bourbon red tom.
    What will the chicks look like?

    Poults;)[​IMG][​IMG] Just kidding, except the part about the poults (turkeys don't hatch chicks, they hatch poults). They should be dark in color with more white than usual on the wings, when compared to the bronze.

    Quote:Check with Kevin Porter, he is the "king" of turkey color genetics. His site is Porters rare turkeys or something like that. You can do a google and it will come up.

    Thanks for the info.

    I now know baby turkeys are poults, not chicks.
