The place I bought them just had a sign that said, "Bronze".
The ones with both light brown and white are Bourbon Reds. The darker blackish brown ones are Bronze turkeys, and the white one is likely a Broad Breasted White.
I agree, if it had longer legs, I would say Holland White, BBW legs are short.
Agreed with the other replies. I am leaning toward BBW on the white turkey, looking at those legs.
Sorry. Should have been more specific. Bought all the turkeys at different times. I bought the bourbon reds from a breeder. They're really small aren't they. The giant white is the only one still alive from one we got from a different store. The bronze ones were an impulse buy. I was at the store and they were getting too big for the brooder there and 1/2 off. I bought them all. lol
So are the bronze ones broad breasted bronze or no?
Around where I am, most all of the bronze turkeys I've seen at feed stores have been the broad breasted type. If they are, they'll probably get close to the white one in size, when mature.
