    I swapped a young white tom for these two turkeys yesterday. Keeping them separate but in sight, has caused a lot of noise this morning [​IMG], but it is very entertaining watching them interact through the fence.

    Not a bad trade. Very nice Royal palm I'd like to have one some time. If I could find some.

    Thanks, but the big tom is a grey not a palm. He is around 5 years old now.

    You are right Royal Palms look similar, but have more white. Good luck on finding some, you shouldn't have too much trouble, they are a popular breed.

    I hope I can find some. But no lie the only breed I find is the white. And the bronze I believe I look at auctions and I see a few while driving around but those are the only 2 breeds. I managed to find some reds after 3 months of looking but I have to drive 3 hrs. But it will be worth it

    The only breed I'm having trouble locating is standard Narragansett. I have 5 hens and can't find a tom for them. Last summer I could have traded a flock of 9 Light Brahma chickens for a flock of 7 breeding age Palms, and my DH talked me out of it. I was out of pen space and he wasn't ready to build any more. Good luck, they may not be common in your location.
