    I think the Eastern Wild Turkey that was hanging out around my pens all spring may have bred one of my Royal Palm hens. Anybody have a pics of this mix in poult and adult? If so please post.

    That cross should look like small bronze turkeys somwhat like a wild turkey. Maybe some of the poults might be small nargies.

    Oma is correct. One of my royal palm hens mated with My wild gobblers, set and hatched seven. Of the seven, five are bronze and two look like they are going to be Narrs.
    I'm pretty sure both are hens, but they are at that 4-5 week age so I'm not positive yet.
