    My royal palms were born in the beginning of May and are still all white. [​IMG]

    Just my opinion but I don't think that you got Royal Palms.

    I think they should have black by now, is it possible they are midget whites instead?

    I have thought that for a while but everyone keeps telling they are royals.

    You are saying that your turkeys are approximately 5 months old. Here is a Royal Palm tom that I had and is approximately 9 weeks old.

    The turkeys that you posted a picture of are not Royal Palms but instead are some variety of white turkey.
