    The boys were really showing off this afternoon when I went out to feed. These are just a few of my free range turkeys.

    This is Henry my Golden Narragansett hatch from this spring.

    This is the back of his fan and his Sweetgrass buddy.

    This is my 2 year old bronze I hatched. He has a lot of Rio Grande in him.

    This pair is my 2 goofy Golden Narragansett hens. They follow you everywhere and are just about pests! They jump up on the 4 wheeler or golf cart and ride with me.

    That evening sun really brings out the iridescence on the Bronze. Put a peacock to shame.

    Quote:The GN's are beautiful birds! I got lucky with mine. I had a mutt hatched a few years ago that grew up to be a GN hen. I bred her back to a Narragansett Tom. The poults were about 50/50 of Narr's and golden narr's. The only bad thing with the GN's is they don't breed true. GN to GN makes GN, N and buff. I am going to breed him with 2 GN hens and a narr hen this spring.

    I would go with the GN's if I were you! I have some nice BR's in the barn but they are a boaring color to me and they are bred for eating here. [​IMG]
