    they just look like regular domesticated black turkeys to me. this particular breed was domesticated from mexican wild turkeys brought into america in the 1500's.

    The breed is Turkey.

    The photo is not good enough to say for sure which variety they are. They do appear to be heritage Black turkeys. Without a good look at the wings spread, it is not possible to tell whether they are just blacks or if they are Barred Blacks.
