    It seems both Tom and Hen were split bronze. Definity Bronse based and not back based like the parents. On my monitor I cant tell the color. Can you describe it? Could be Bronze. The Nargie gene is a delution gene that might be there. It is sexlinked and changes black to grey on a bronze base. If a single slate gene is there it is a red slate. http://www.porterturkeys.com/redslate.htm
