Wild Turkeys

The Wild Turkey is a beautiful wild turkey breed that has had a consistent and growing population in the back country and country side of the Eastern United States since Colonists first arrived in America. 
Wild Turkeys around their release penThe Wild Turkey was used by early poultry farmers to create many of today’s Commercial and Heritage Turkey Breeds by crossing them with turkey breeds brought from Europe.

Wild Turkeys are excellent fliers, and you will find them in many hardwood forests, softwood forests, cultivated pastures, or agricultural fields up and down the Eastern United States. This breed is extremely hardy and can adapt to many different environments in the UK. The Wild Turkey is the most abundant and widely hunted wild turkey in North America. This bird is what real Christmas dinner turkey should taste like. The meat is white but with more flavor than the table birds you eat at Christmas.
