    I have several poults that hatched about a week ago, and when they hatched they all looked somewhat bronze poult like. there are Narrys, bronze and i think they said 1 or 2 different kinds of wild turkeys too... so at what age will they start distinguishing themselves?
    Thanks

    you will start to see differences in as little as three weeks. The narragansetts will start to get lighter, especially on their backs.

    Ok, I don't see a difference. Maybe it's just me. I have bronze and mine look like both pictures.
