Standard Bronze Heritage Turkeys

The bronze turkeys originated from a cross between the domestic breeds brought by European colonists to the America’s with the Eastern Wild Turkeys. The cross breed resulted in a larger bird than the European breeds and a much tamer version of Eastern Wild Turkey. The Standard Bronze Heritage Turkey coloring exposes a russet-bronze metallic sheen which was inherited by it’s Eastern Wild Turkey ancestors.  

The Standard Bronze Turkeys are known to have a longer lifespan with a natural ability to breed and excellent foraging skills creating exceptional flavor. These attributes make this breed perfect for the small farm or backyard flock owner. 

This breed does take longer to get to processing weight, with heritage breed turkeys typically processed between 24-28 weeks of age. Weights can vary with hens weighing an average of 16lbs and toms 25lbs.
