    So we just rescued two turkeys from a friend who's husband is highly allergic to them. I am completely new to the live end of poultry. I have worked in the poultry industry for the last ten years but it has been in the processing world. So what kind of breed did I end up with? I am honking they are broad breasted bronze but I honestly have no clue on breeds. Also they told us the tom is the one closest to the camera and standing. But I believe the tom is the one furthest from the camera laying down. Any help is greatly appreciated. We were told they are about a year old.

    They do look like BBBs. The one laying down in the rear of the photo is the tom.

    Thank you very much!! We just checked on them and they had already knocked over the waterer. Guess it will be a trip to tractor supply for a larger one. Lol
