    I was looking at the pics of them on feathersite and noticed that some had pencilled tails and others not. I got some eggs and only ended up with one and although it has black wings I was really wanting a pencilled bird. Does my turkey possibly have the pencil genetics?

    Also if anyone has pics of thier BWB I would love to see them.

    Feather site is not correct on many colors. Black winged bronze do not have a pencilling gene. What you want is a tiger bronze. It is a Black winged bronze based with the addition of a single gray (aka palm) and also homozygous for the pencilling genes.

    Oma is correct. Probably the best source to get what you want is porterturkeys.com. I have a couple of 6 week old tiger bronze. Cannot wait to see them with adult plumage.
