Heritage Bourbon Red Turkey (Either Sex 3 months +) SPECIAL ORDER
These birds will be 3+ months old and are typically butcher ready at 8-12 months if desired.
Heritage turkeys are defined by the historic, range-based production system in which they are raised. Today’s heritage turkeys reach a marketable weight in about 28 weeks, giving the birds time to develop a strong skeletal structure and healthy organs prior to building muscle mass. Heritage turkeys are prized for their rich, gourmet tasting meat that needs to be tasted to be appreciated.
Bourbon Reds are quiet and docile on top of being beautiful. They make great pets and get along with other species quite well.
Please note that the loss rate is much higher in young turkey poults than it is with chicks of the same age. We recommend that you order 1.5X the number of adult birds you would like to end up with. Our 7 day guarantee doesn't apply to turkeys but our live arrival in shipping does.
