    Hi everyone,

    I was given 8 turkey eggs 25 days ago, Placed them in the incubateer and they 5 of them hacthed 2 days ago . Have 3 eggs that are still in there since they havnt reached the 28 days yet.

    does any one know the breed ? they where given to me as wild colour turkeys, but they dont seem to bee all the same color ,

    The dark ones with the white faces look like black Spanish turkey's, the last pic looks like it could be bronze or 'wild type' :) but I'm no expert lol

    From the different colored poults, I would guess that they are a mixed variety.

    The 2nd poult will grow up to be a black turkey but I have no way of knowing whether it is a Slate based black or derived from a Black Spanish.

    The last one looks to me like it will be a bronze looking or a wild type turkey.
