Narragansett Turkeys - Endangered Breed

American Livestock Breeds Conservancy: the Narragansett turkey is a "historic variety, unique to North America"

Heritage American Variety.

Hardy Bird

Self-sufficiency

Reproduce naturally

Excellent mothers - they all work as a team raising the chicks

Toms are great dads - they will not harm the chicks and are (humorous to watch) careful not to step on them.

Friendly

Calm

Curious

AS PETS:
These birds are excellent pets. They will follow you around like a dog curious about what you are doing, where you are going.
They will let you know when a stranger is around. Otherwise, they are quiet.

FOR MEAT:
Eat locally - raise your own food - the traditional 'Thanksgiving' turkey like a heirloom tomatoes. Skip the unhealthy factory-raised turkey. These birds' meat quality is excellent. Far healthier than store bought 'manufactured' broad breasted varieties.
More robust flavored meat. More dark meat.
Toms 22 to 28 pounds
Hens 12 to 16 pounds


We have been raising these birds for a few years now. You will be able to see all the parents when you come to pick your chicks up. You will be able to, in most cases, hand pick your chicks. I can make a best guess between males and females, but it will just be a guess. Straight run!

Question we are often asked:

Do you have a Tom and do you have Hens you are selling. The answer is yes, we do raise many males and females to sale at later stages. At the time of this posting, we do not have any older birds available.

We do accept deposits to raise your birds to an agreed upon age.

We do offer to raise your bird at an agreed age and fully process your bird. Deposit required.

We do not ship birds.

We do sell fertile eggs, which we will ship.

We do sell feathers, shipping available.

Thank you for reading!
