Can anyone tell me what breed of turkeys these are. I think one is a slate, but not sure about the others.

The breed is easy. The breed is Turkey. As far as what variety of turkey they are, they are mixed varieties. Looks like at least two of them and possibly all 3 are carrying the red (r) color gene so they probably have Bourbon Red in their background. The one in front is most likely carrying the Black Winged Bronze gene (b1). The grayish one may be carrying a Slate gene(D) but it may also be due to the gray/semi-gray gene (cg).

You might get better identification results by posting them on the Turkey Color Genetics group on Facebook.
