    I originally thought Black Spanish but they're getting white on the feathers and one is lighter than the rest. Mix of Black Spanish and Royal Palm? They came from the hardware store. 20190709_202234.jpg 20190709_203402.jpg 20190709_202131.jpg

    Ask your hardware store which hatchery they ordered from. It's one of the easiest way to narrow these things down. :)

    As far as I know, Spanish no longer exist and is used to describe any black turkey.

    Sorry I can't be more help, I've just started my turkey adventure and still familiarizing with them. Maybe @R2elk has some ideas? TIA:pop

    Thank you!
    They came from Privett Hatchery, but they don't look quite like the black turkeys displayed on the website
    Maybe I got mottled turkeys or royal palm mixes
