    So, I bought this pair of turkeys at an auction a few days ago. The box was labeled as "tiger bronze pair". However, all the photos I find online of tiger bronze are of turkeys with black breast/wings/sides. As you can see, these two are penciled just about everywhere. The closest matches I've found are penciled palms and red penciled palms. But they're much redder than the penciled palms, and much darker and more marked than the red pencilled palms. Anyone have any guesses?

    They look like a red version of a Narragansett, they are very pretty. Have you've checked Porter turkeys website to see if anything looks close.
