These are combinations of our breeds here on the farm. They are a combination of Narragansett, Black Spanish and Midget Whites. These cuties can look grey or any other colors. These would have a rainbow of colors! We have been loving how these are turning out this season. Check out our breed descriptions for all information on heritage turkeys.
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. They crave companionship and the boys love to show off! Turkeys prefer to be free ranged and roost as high up as possible. 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. 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.
