    Ok I'm getting a royal palm hen and I have a red bourbon tom will he breed the Royal Palm hen? Since she's not the same type of bird as my tom is?

    Will be no problem with him mating her.

    But with just one hen watch out for her well being cause there is a possibility of him over mating her.

    A Bourbon Red tom like any other color variety of tom turkey will willingly mate with any color variety of turkey along with anything else that will lay down in front of him.

    The offspring of a pure Bourbon Red tom and a pure Royal Palm hen will all be Red Bronze turkeys.
