    We are Wilson's poultry. We already have a question. We have two royal palm turkeys, we believe both female, and three bronze broad breasted, two male one female. One of our royal palms laid a clutch of 5 eggs, which hatched last night. These are our first hatchlings. From all of the information we have read these two breeds cannot mate so we have no idea who fertalized her eggs. Any one have any ideas??

    Welcome to BYC! BBR and Royal Palms can breed with each other. They're both turkeys, just different breeds.

    yeah the bronze breasted Tom fertilized the eggs. Bronze breasted turkey and royal palm turkey can certainly and do as you can see interbreed. They are both Turkeys just like chickens can intermingle so can turkeys. congrats on the babies

    Just wondering, are you in KS? I used to live there and there was a Wilson family with turkeys.

    Thanks for joining us!

    Ok, just wondered. I used to work with a Wilson in KS and her husband's family raised turkeys.

    Funny kind of coincidence...guess it really is a small world after all [​IMG]
