    I got 7 turkey poults from an auction about 2 months ago. They were very small, so I am guessing they are about 2 months now. 1 is a royal palm, 1 is a black spanish, 2 were Narragansett(sp?), I lost them 2 weeks ago from cocci. And I have 3 of these. This one is a hen But what breed or cross? I have had chickens for awhile but these are my first turkeys and I am learning as I go.Thank you!

    I just found this image on Google. Could they be Jersey Buff? Aren't they very rare?
