    I bought this little girl as a poult back in August, she was just fuzzy then with some darker markings. The people I bought her from advertised her as a Royal Palm turkey, but she was also in a cage with several other breeds including Midget Whites, Blacks, Slates and a few others.

    I'm pretty certain that she is but I want a few other opinions. Is she actually a Blue Palm? I really don't mind, as I've wanted one since I've discovered I liked turkeys. But would it be worth it to get her a boyfriend?

    I hope to someday. ^_^ I love her to death and would really like to get some chicks out of her. Right now we only have a Bourban Red tom (who I thought was a hen until recently) and two Narragansett toms. :'( I hope to find her a man this summer if I can help it. XD

    She is a beauty! I haven't seen many other birds other than what the hatcheries sell. You have something special! [​IMG]

    Didn't realize they were so rare. I love her to pieces though. She's really silly and follows me everywhere. Hopefully one day I can get her a boyfriend. =3
