Valley Hatchery is proud to offer Royal Palm Turkeys, a unique and attractive breed that is known for its striking appearance with bands of metallic black against a largely white plumage. These birds are not primarily used for meat production and are often kept as ornamental birds or for exhibition. Despite their primary use for exhibition and egg production, Royal Palm Turkeys do lay a small number of large to extra-large off-white eggs each year.
Originating in North America and recognized by the American Poultry Association, Royal Palm Turkeys are an active breed with an average weight of 16lbs for toms and 10lbs for hens. They can also tend to go broody, which can be useful for those looking to hatch their own eggs.
As an endangered breed classified as “watch” by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, Royal Palm Turkeys are a rare and special addition to any farm. If you’re looking to add some unique and attractive birds to your homestead for exhibition or egg production, consider adding Royal Palm Turkeys from Valley Hatchery to your flock.
