    I'd like to know exactly the colour genetic code of this spotted grey turkey.
    I have planned to cross him with a wild Florida hen and 2 grey sisters.

    Besides, I want to cross a Royal Palm tom with females of differents colors (black, grey, brown bronce and grey-brown) All these females are the result of the cross Majorca X Royal Palm.

    Still learning about colors... but beautiful birds! Looks like a cross.

    and the Turkey genetics Calculator says that all the progeny is black, and I have obtained blacks but not too many.
