    My guess would have to be a Narragansett. Although @R2elk Is really good at this kind of stuff, Better than me at least.

    The hens appear to be some type of mixed variety, probably Narragansett based with something else mixed in.

    Unfortunately many of these mixed varieties do not have any reference photos posted to check them against.

    The tom looks to be a Royal Palm and is such if he only has black & white but if he has any brown on him, he is a tri-color. The Royal Palm is most likely where those hens got their Narragansett gene from. If the mother was known it would be possible to ID them from the Turkey Color Calculator.

    You can try asking on the Turkey Color Genetics group on Facebook.

    If you breed them to your Royal Palm tom, you are likely to get some Royal Palms, Narragansett Semi-Color Semi-Gray, Dark Gray and Black Winged Narragansett Semi-Color Semi-Gray offspring if the color genetics are what I suspect they are.

    Crossing a Royal Palm tom with an Eastern Wild (bronze) hen would produce Narragansett Semi-Color Semi-Gray hens and Bronze Semi-Color Semi-Gray toms. Crossing an Eastern Wild (bronze) tom with a Royal Palm hen would create all Bronze Semi-Color Semi-Gray offspring.

    In this photo she does look like a Narragansett Semi-Color Semi-Gray.
