    The link you posted has a picture of a Royal Palm Tom beside a picture of a Calico hen. There is no photo of a Royal Palm hen in that link. Porter's is a trusted source. There are lots of photos of misidentified turkeys on the web. Porter's site is accurate. If the photo you were looking at doesn't look like the one's on Porter's site, the one that you are looking at is the one that is wrong not Porter's.

    It may well be a Calico hen or some slight variation.

    She looks very close to a sweetgrass, most have a bit more black in the back feathers, but yours looks to be one.
