I came across a video of a mating royal palm turkey. He's certainly beautiful.

Royal Palm is one of the varieties listed in the Australian Poultry Standards 2nd ed.

The guineas are pretty interested in what's going on there.

The Royal Palms are in my opinion the most beautiful of the turkey colours. The American ones, as in the video, have dark flight feathers whereas australian ones tend to have almost white flights.

In this pic from Porter's website, you can see the dark feathers I'm talking about.
