    I posted last week pictures of one of my turkeys that I didn't know the breed. I was given the choices of wild, narganasett(I know I didn't spell that right!) and bronze(bb or reg). Well it seems to be getting a lot bigger then my bourbon red poult that was hatched at the same time. Is this any indicator that it might be a broad breasted bronze? Just impatient and trying to determine breed without waiting another couple of weeks!![​IMG]

    Here is a picture to kinda show the difference. I can really tell a big difference in the size of their legs!

    Here is a pic of a Narri & Wishard Bronze poults. These guys will be a week old on Sunday. As you can tell they almost look a like except for a very few differences.

    I would have to say by the size in the time that you have a BB Bronze, time will tell.

    The standard bronze poults don't grow much faster or much bigger then the rest, at that age.
