I'm not savvy enough to post pics, but I just got a 5 or 6 month old Narragansett Turkey 3 days ago to replace the male we recently lost, and it is not like our previous male at all. (There was no question that "Stripes" was a male). This new one is tall and slender with a very distinctive line of feathers going up the back of its neck to the head, smallish feet, sturdy legs, the snood is hardly bigger than the hen's. It's darker with more distinct colors and some greenish iridescence on the tail, no white tipped breast feathers, no strutting, but I did hear a little gobble 3 times. The head and neck are bright red and blue when excited. Not sure what a beard is supposed to look like, but hubby found a little bristle-like growth about an inch long on its chest. It is very gentle, and only had to fight one time with the dominant hen...which it won... to find its place in the flock. If it is a male I hope that it will be able to breed the hens, because it is not showing any interest at this point at all. Is this normal, for a new male? Is it normal to be a little passive or shy when first introduced into the flock? It may have been dominated in the previous situation. Any Insight would be appreciated.
