I have developed a strain of turkeys that we are calling "Blue Red Bronze" they are a much richer red color overall than any Lilac or Red Slate lines I've seen.
They are bronze based with a single slate and red gene. Genotype (b+b+DdRr). Some are (b+b1DdRr), these carry the addition of a single black winged bronze gene as well.
They have a rich solid red tail with thin blue barring throughout the length of the tail ending in a wide blue band with a creme tip,this color/pattern also extends into the smaller body feathers as well, while the wing feathers only have a slight barring pattern with a reddish coloration and just a hint of blue.
Unfortunately they do not breed true, several results can occur when breeding these: Blue Red Bronze, Bourbon Red, Lilac, Buff Slate, Red Slate, Bronze, Black Winged Bronze, Red Phoenix,Regal Red and Red Bronze.
The following pics are a few feather examples of the blue red bronze

Note the thin blue barring all thruout the length of the tail.
