    Well since a Narg is the result of breeding a Royal Palm to an Eastern Wild then I would guess that a turkey that is 3/4 Eastern Wild is going to pretty much look like an Eastern Wild. Send an email to Porter and they should be able to tell you.

    Unlike chickens....turkeys are all the same basic breed originating from the same wild stock... the different breeds are a mere matter of color patterns, giving them different names because of their color.
