This beautiful bird descends from a cross between the Eastern Wild Turkey and domestic turkeys brought to this country by European colonists. It is named for the Narragansett Bay of Rhode Island. They are a rare, multicolored, medium-sized breed with hens weighing up to 17 lbs. And toms up to 30 lbs. Their body plumage is primarily black with bands of steel gray. The tail is dull black, regularly penciled with parallel lines of tan, edged with steel gray. They are known for being calmer than most and are good mothers.  

As poults the Broad Breasted Bronze turkey's legs are thicker than those of the Standard Bronze or Narragansett.  If you hold them facing you, their Broad Breasted Bronze, they have a more broad back than the others.

 

We are no longer shipping turkeys to Alaska.
