Blue Slate Turkey
Blue Slate Turkeys, which reproduce naturally, are one variety with two genotypes that correspond to chicken genotypes known as blue splash and self blue. The blue splash genotype birds have a few specks of black scattered over the slate or ashy blue feathers. The males with self blue genotypes have solid feathers, which are dull, grayish blue; and the hens have lighter, bluish gray plumage. Their shanks and toes are pink. The beak is horn in color; the eyes are dark brown, and the beard is black.
