I have been researching which heritage type of turkey that would be best for my future needs, and the Narragansett seems to have many things that I am looking for. I have been told that the hens are excellent mothers, and they have a deep natural instinct for laying and also hatching thier own chicks. (no incubator needed). Also I have read somewhere that this breed has one of the best immune systems and are pretty hardy.
I have located a source almost in my back yard. On monday I will be picking up his last 2 Narragansetts. But he does have quite a few other breeds of turkeys and chickens, so he is a poultry breeder.
I will pass on his info if anyone who lives close to the Lebanon, Pa area.
His name is Kevin Harnish and his phone # is 717- 821-7848
He has Slates,Red Bourbons, and I think he said Spanish Blacks. He also has a vast amount of chicken breeds.
He will sell direct to you right off the farm.
