Bourbon Red Turkeys are a rare heritage breed and were admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1909. They were developed in Pennsylvania and later brought to Kentucky. They were given their name for Bourbon County, Kentucky where they were very popular. They are a good meat bird, toms are up to 35lbs., the hens around 20lbs. They have light pinfeathers so will dress as cleanly as the white birds. The plumage is a rich, dark chestnut color, with the wing tips and back of the tail are white. they are a very attractive looking turkey. They have a very calm disposition. Like all heritage breeds, they mate naturally and hens are good mothers. Turkeys come straight run only.
You must pay for Express shipping for 10 or less turkey poults until April 1st. After April 1st orders of 10 can be priority shipped but orders of 5 must still be Express shipped.
