    Lady nearby hatches out eggs from a lady who sells BBB hatching eggs. I guess once awhile one of these hatches out. I had to have it. So pretty. Is this just a sport? Are they a breed? The breeding group has no white birds. Any info guys? It's 8 weeks old.

    it looks like a Royal Palm to me, when bred with BBB you get a broad breasted white.woops it actualy the whit holland that you breed with a BBB to get a BBW, sorry.

    There are no other breeds with this flock. She just does BBB.

    Is this what Royal Palms look like as poults?

    The black and white certainly look royal palm.
    If in fact it does grow out to be a Royal, you will end up with a very beautiful bird. Unless you were wanting an eating turkey...in which case Royals aren't ideal. I am planning on raising royal palms, they are really sweet and among the prettiest. Best of luck. :)

    Not an expert here, but that's not what mine lookedike as poults. The markings on my palms were more stripes on the feathers, not quite so lacey looking. Much much more white on mine too.

    Whatever it is you have, it is darn pretty.

    Very pretty turkey, it is probably a cross. It will be interesting to see what it looks like as it grows! Will you keep posting updated pictures as it develops?[​IMG]

    I agree that it's is a beauty. I have a female Royal Palm. She was pure white when she hatched. Now is absolutely gorgeous. I'll try to find a way to post pic's.:D
    I also have 2 toms that are a cross between RP and Bronze. They are a brownish and tan. Also pretty.

    Doesn't look like a Royal Palm to me. Too much black on the upper back, especially for a bird so young. I'm thinking its just some rare fluke. Interesting looking though. Curious to see it when its older.
