    So I picked these babies up at r.k. and was told they're broad breasted bronze. They were the only 2 left in the bin, but now they're growing very white feathers, is that normal? 20190711_172517.jpg

    They are at an in between stage. These are not what their mature feathers will look like.

    I have several of these turkeys and I have had both white and dark feathers, they will change into the darker bronzes.

    I have a white broad breasted girl who has ONE feather with q black stripe. She has currently adopted our now 3 month old Narragansett turkeys and has been a great momma to them. Also is helping them learn to fear us less.
