These are the birds that predate broadbreasted turkeys. They are smaller, slower growing, have more dark meat and a lot more flavour than modern commercial turkeys. They can fly, breed naturally, raise their own young and can live for 10 years or more. Because they are less efficient at converting grain to meat they are expensive to grow and have fallen out of favour commercially. Keeping these breeds alive is important because of their hardiness, disease resistance and genetic diversity, all characteristics which may be needed in future turkey breeding.
