    I could add quite a bit to this thread ... hmm. Mine are pencilled turkeys, for the most part, although I have a few that have reverted back to bronze wild type and a couple of smoke grey (a wild type mutant) hens. Those are all looking like dinner.
    I also have a hen who just pulled off a late hatch of 14 babies a couple of weeks ago. She still has 13 of them left and they seem to be doing okay. I normally raise them in a brooder because the hens are usually such poor mothers, but this old bearded girl seems to be an exception. She looks like a wild turkey and seems to have her maternal instincts still intact.
    Her photos are around here someplace as hen turkey reference.
