    Beautiful birds, i have been toying with the idea of turkeys but decided that we really don't have room right now to give them the space they need. between the chickens, ducks, dogs and garden there is no more room :( hopefully one day though.....

    The dark one looks like a standard bronze. Notice how light the terminal tail band is. Eastern wild generally have much less contrast between the tail band and the rest of the tail (also darker bands at the tips of the feathers on the back (the over tail coverts).
