    Anyone know what you call this colour?? The poult is hers and looks exactly the same as what she did at that age (think it's a boy though)She is only seven months old, and she hatched out a clutch in the middle of winter [​IMG] as did 2 other of my hens, I told some turkey breeders and I think they thought I was dreaming, one said that they must be older than I think...... got them as day olds though!!

    which turkey? the one on the right looks like a Royal Palm, the one in the middle looks like an Oregon Gray Slate, and the one on the
    right looks like a regular gray slate.

    If you have any more questions send me a PM
    I don't read threads

    I hope I helped,

    The mother hen looks very much like a golden narragnasett, but if it looked white as a poult it is more likely a pale sweetgrass. The frosting on the secondaries suggests a narragansett gene, but a hen sweetgrass with a narragansett gene would be a royal palm.

    What did the tom (the father) look like. Does the mother have barred primaries or are the solid gray (black-winged)?

    I have no Idea what the father was, I know the father of the poult was white or bronze (have 2 running with the girls, but most likely white.)
