    The two that are white and black look like royal palm.

    The dark one is a bronze tom and the other two look like hens with some Royal Palm in them but they do not appear to be pure Royal Palms. Maybe mixed with Nargy. [​IMG]

    The two appear to be a rp x Narri and the other looks to be a Bronze or Wild x of something with his wings having that brown in there like that ??

    Looks to be a mix of a few types of turks to me.

    We weren't set on any one breed- just hoping to raise a few turkeys at home (for the table) every year and got a very good deal on this trio to start our turkey raising adventure.

    I couldn't find any pictures online that looked exactly like any of the three though - so BYCers to the rescue! LOL. [​IMG]

    Thanks!
