    Quote:Did you see the tom's wings? They arent barred like a wild turkeys would be. Those turkeys have to be mixed.

    The gobbler is a Black Spanish mixed with either a standard bronze or wild. Note the three bronze feathers on his shoulder and one tail feather that is barred. The rest of his plumage looks like black spanish. The first hen appears to be bronze mixed with maybe chocolate, or more likely some black spanish. The second hen looks like eastern wild, but not a pure eastern wild. Probably a mix.
    That's my analysis.[​IMG]

    The male may be a Bronze. I think the hens are Red-Bronze, which is a cross of Bronze and Bourbon Red. I have a Red-Bronze pair and the hens look exactly like mine. I have hatched 4 of their eggs, looks like I got 2 Bronze, 1 Red-Bronze and 1 Bourbon Red.
