    mix of a royal palm and bourbon red turkey breed with the same mix or another breed of turkey and produce fertile eggs and have babies?
    Or are they mules?

    I never really read into turkey mixes, so I wouldn't know.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    All domestic turkeys are from the same species, the differences is only in the color and weights in the various varieties. So it's much more like breeding one color to another. Different weights too in some cases such as the Midgets and broadbreasteds.
