    It looks like a Bronze turkey to me. It is far too young for me to tell whether it is a Broad Breasted Bronze or a heritage Bronze.

    BBB and heritage Bronze look the same in photographs. The only real way to differentiate them at a young age is if they are the same age and side by side the BBB will be bigger. Without an age or size reference it is not possible to look at a photograph of a young Bronze poult and know whether it is BB or heritage.
