    This is my new little guy or gal [​IMG] I love it already [​IMG] He/She is so calm and would love to be held all day. Anyway do you know what breed of turkey it is? The people we got it from doesn't know the breed they where just given the eggs to hatch.

    Thanks

    yes this guy/gal is a sweet heart. I am hoping to keep it as friendly as possible since it's a pet [​IMG] So I have a bronze, sweet. There is no way to tell right? As far as wether it's a male or female?

    Its probably a bronze since they are so common, but it could be a Narragansett. Probably too dark to be a bourbon red.

    Okay so here is a off the wall question but could it have some wild turkey in it or be a wild turkey? I had someone tell me it looks a lot like wild turkey poults, just a thought [​IMG]
