Heritage Turkey

Check out our heritage turkeys. These are combinations of our breeds here on the farm which produce some fun colors. They can be a combination of Narragansett, Black Spanish and Midget Whites.  We generally get gray turkeys from this mix. They are still considered heritage turkeys and all the same attributes apply, just some fun colors.

We find turkeys to be extremely hardy birds and very social. When we are out in the farm yard they are right there following us around. Been here for a farm visit? You have seen our toms showing off and being social. Heritage turkeys prefer to be free ranged and roost as high up as possible.  They don’t bare confinement well due to their large size and nature. Remember these turkeys can fly. The Hens tend to wander and Toms stay close to the food! They are alert and gaggle whenever they sense danger or anyone coming to the farm.

Hens generally weigh around 14 pounds and toms 23 pounds.  Heritage turkeys are considered endangered so there is some work to be done on weights.  Heritage turkeys have traditionally been known for their calm disposition, good maternal abilities, early maturation, egg production, and excellent meat quality. Turkeys are seasonal layers and only lay in the spring and summer months.

Feed Recommendations: turkeys are considered a gamebird and need higher protein when developing. We recommend Sugar Feather Farm gamebird starter,  when they are poults, Sugar Feather Farm gamebird grower when they are growing and when adults can switch to our adult feed. If you are raising strictly for meat production and pasture a different feed regimen will apply. You can reach out for recommendations on that program.

We also highly recommend Oil of Oregano – It can help prevent blackhead disease!
