    That's a turkey right? Probably a Bronze Turkey.

    Well, it looks like a turkey... I'd guess something heritage?

    I have no clue, my husband brought it home for me. The owner did not know what kind it was, just that it was a fancy chicken.

    I am almost 100% positive that is not a turkey.

    The only simularity I see with turkeys is the little bump on his head

    The bump on a turkeys head is called a "snood" That is a turkey, it's got the start of a snood, and is different from your average chicken chick. Ameraucana's and Easter Eggers have beards. That chick/poult does not.

    If you would have read what I said clearly it says americana cross not a purebred. You need to chill out.
