    We are new to keeping turkeys.Last week we bought 1 tom and 1 hen.They are wild turkey/royal palm mixes.So now I have been reading all the turkey posts I can find,,,,,,,,,problem is I can't figure out what type turkeys everyone are talking about when initials are uses.About the only one I get is BR-bourbon reds.Is there a list somewhere or could someone post the translations for me?
    Thank you,
    Bob
