    I think it is hard to tell from pictures. My monitor looks like those turkeys are two different colors. Do they look the same?

    The one in the foreground may be a Red Bronze. Other one is more typical of a Standard Bronze.

    The darker one could certainly be a bronze. However, I just raised some bronze and narragansett together, and at that age, they were very hard to tell apart. The Naraggansetts gradually lightened and became more obvious, but at one point I thought I had four branze and three narragansetts, and now I am quite certain I have 5 narragansett and only two bronze. Time will tell!

    I have no experience with the browner poult.
