    I am not having much luck on google finding poult pictures! I bought blue slate and bourbon red hatching eggs. I assume the light grey and white poult is the blue slate, and the darker one is the bourbon red? They just hatched today, the adorable little buggers [​IMG]

    You have a black Spanish and a blue slate. When ever two blue slates are bred together you can get three results. Black, slate and self blue lavender.

    Thanks! Regardless of what variety they are, they are so adorable. Are turkey poults usually very clumsy their first few days? They are like bambi on ice sometimes with those long legs! No spraddle leg, just seems like they don't know how to work them yet [​IMG]
