    How can I tell if it is a BBW or a white midget?

    I have sixteen of them that will be 4 weeks old Wed. Also I ordered surplus turkey order is why I have no idea what hey are.

    To me (keeping in mind that my eyesight isn't what it used to be), the top one looks like a buff color, possibly a Bourbon Red. They start out really light then mold to the beautiful rich color. Second down, Bronze or Narrigansett? If Bronze, could be Standard or Broad Breasted. If any of them start growing really fast and have thicker legs, I would suspect Broad Breasted but being already 4 weeks old I would think you would have a huge size difference by now.

    I agree with Frosty, the top is a Bourbon, middle looks like a bronze, On the bottom one if you got them from a hatchery could be Royal Palm, Midget, White Holland or BBW. The palms start white and get the black as they age.
