    These two guys i got from a friend, no description whatsoever. I was looking at pictures from around the web, what do you think?
    I think the dark one is a Red Bronze mix, and the blonde one is a Jersey Buff?

    Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    I think the bronze colored one looks a lot like a wild.

    well i know he isnt wild, but his secondary wing feathers are reddish, and on porter turkeys he looks exactly like a red bronze, im pretty sure he is.
    and thanks!

    There is no buff. they are a solid color buff. The other one could be Bronze. They look very similar to the Wild ones.

    I was going to say he looked a lot like a Palm Turkey.

    Look at the second pic down of the Buff: http://www.porterturkeys.com/jerseybuff.htm Doesn't look (from the pics) to have the white that a palm does. The Bronze looks very familiar to me, but I can't remember for the life of me where I saw a bronze with the red towards the tail like that!
