    Hi people
    I'm new here. I received a couple of turkey poults for my birthday but I am absolutely clueless what breeds are they. Can you all out there help me to identify them please?


    Thank you!!
    Mike

    Look like standard bronze or broad-breasted bronze. Could be Narragansetts as well. Narragansetts and bronze look the same until about 3 weeks.


    oh yeah, [​IMG]. How did Redsoxs the greeter miss this?

    Thank you. i'll show their pictures again in another 3 weeks time, if they survive that long. one of them keeps chirping and she seems to doze off a lot.

    i read that broad breasted cannot breed naturally and the guy who gave me these poults told me the breeder does not practice artifiicial insemination. so i reckon they are standards or Narragansetts
