Graycots, 4 Kingston Road, Great Eversdon, Cambridge,
The Bronze turkey is named for its unusual color, a shimmering green-bronze which appears metallic in the sunlight. It is found in two types, the Broad-breasted which has commercial uses, and the Unimproved (or naturally-mating), for small-scale production. Both are rare in North America.
The unimproved Bronze is rarer still, with only one hatchery breeding flock and a few scattered university flocks known.
Males are 25-40 lbs. Females are 14-26 lbs.
Very rare. Less than 300 breeding hens found in the 1987 ALBC poultry survey.
