Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey
This is a 2 day old broad breasted bronze turkey.
Here is a picture of one of our bronze turkeys. The turkey is 2 weeks old in this picture.
Here is a young turkey out enjoying the sunshine. This year we put our turkeys out on pasture at five weeks of age. At this age, they have enough feathers to keep them warm on these cool summer nights we have been having this year.(picture from 2012)
Here is a picture of a 7 week old turkey. They were very friendly and were fascinated with my camera! We have upgraded our structure since this picture. The birds have a pasture to roam in during the day, and then a structure in the pasture that they can use to get out of the weather. We have a special electric fence around the pasture to keep the birds safe.
This is a more recent picture of our facility. We have upgraded our enclosures so turkeys have more room to roam. (2016)
