    I have two turkey poults that we're hatched September 22nd, making them 9.5 weeks as of today. I don't know what breed they are, and the feed store was clueless when I picked them out. I'm including pictures from day one, approx 5 weeks, and within the last couple days. If any specific additional pictures would help with identification I would be happy to take them and get them posted as well! They are wonderful, very friendly birds, don't seem to be the smartest of the poultry I've kept though [​IMG]. They have picked up growth significantly in the last 2 weeks or so if that helps with ID at all. Any insight would be much appreciated! (I would love any guesses on gender as well [​IMG])

    the darker one is bronze or narrigansett based.

    the red and white one is bourbon red.

    I agree with the lighter one being bourbon red. The darker one is much darker than my Narragansett chicks. It's going to be beautiful!
