    Narragansetts and bronzes have very similar colors for the first 3 or 4 weeks, but the Narragansetts get appreciably lighter by 7 or 8 weeks. The don't all lighten up at the same rate, but your turkey looks at least 7 weeks old and at the very least there should be some light gray on the upper back and the secondary flight feathers should be much paler. One of my 7 week olds is already completely Narragansett colored, while others only have streaks of lighter gray. But yours looks like a st. bronze.
