We just bought a breeding pair or 7.5 month old turkeys. We were told they are royal palms. I have my doubts. Can anyone identify these beautiful turkeys please? Ignore the turkey with the black tail in The picture with the rooster in it

    Looks like my narragansettsI used to have. Heritage breed. If it is, theyve always been friendly

    That’s what I was thinking. We are new to this so I was just googling pictures. They female is white and black like the royal palm though.

    That’s what I thought. The female is but the male has brown on him and doesn’t look like the pictures that I was looking at. Thanks so much!

    They are definitely not Royal palms since Royal Palms are only black and white. I am guessing that these are Narragansett Semi-Color Semi-Gray.

    If so, they would be bb1 Ccg nn or bb1 Ccg n-. They can be created by breeding a Royal Palm tom to Narragansett hens.

    Thanks! That’s a big help! What does bb1 Ccg nn or bb1 Ccg n- mean? We are very new to all of this

    The genetic color designations are defined in a table at Porter's Turkey Color Calculator.
