    Why were they doing that? Did they want a smaller turkey with little breast meat? I'm a dark meat man myself but my wife wants only breast. My 3 kids also want only dark! Hey, maybe this is a cross for us! [​IMG]

    Quote:he said he brought the brooze pair but the hen died so he put his palm in there.the off spring looked like narragansetts with just a little more white in the feathers.

    I did have a bronze mate with a RP this year by accident so the last 2 hatches have been the mix and the poults are yellow with some beige on the winge feathers. I don't know what the heck i'm gonna do with them. I should have knocked them on the head when they hatched! [​IMG]
