    I have just started breeding some turkens and I am expecting some babies soon. I know that alot of the turkens now days are not "pure bred", and it said they originated in Europe. I am just wondering if there any flocks out there still that have not been bred to other breeds?

    Show Quality ones. Most hatcheries do indeed have a lot of mutts with simply the naked neck, since it is dominant, but I've seen a few Show Quality ones that are certainly very true to the original standard. Not sure if they're completely related to the original from Europe, but I doubt they have much, if anything, crossed into them.
