Valley Hatchery is excited to introduce Bourbon Red Turkey Poults—an extraordinary and visually striking heritage breed celebrated for its distinctive reddish plumage and the eye-catching white primaries in the tail. These unique and attractive turkeys, primarily renowned for their active nature, take center stage as a prized choice for meat production. Beyond their primary role in providing succulent meat, Bourbon Red Turkeys also contribute by laying a modest quantity of large to extra-large off-white eggs each year.
Originating in North America, Bourbon Red Turkeys have earned recognition from the American Poultry Association. With an average weight of 23 lbs for toms and 14 lbs for hens at slaughter age (generally around 28 weeks, though no guarantees), these birds are well-suited for optimal meat production. Additionally, they possess the tendency to go broody, offering a valuable characteristic for those interested in hatching their own eggs.
As an esteemed heritage breed, Bourbon Red Turkeys represent a unique and valuable addition to your farm. If you’re seeking to enhance your farmstead with both distinctive and productive birds for meat production, consider the addition of Bourbon Red Turkeys from Valley Hatchery. Our commitment extends beyond providing exceptional poultry; we are dedicated to preserving heritage breeds and offering you a unique and rewarding addition to your flock.
