Golden Narragansett Hen pic!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

This spring a guy gave me some turkey eggs to hatch.  He had RP's, BR,s and Narr's all running togather.  I was hatching them to raise for meat birds but I got a really pretty surprise with this pretty little golden narragansett hen.  She is about 5 months now and I have a Narragansett tom that she will be paired up with next spring and see if I get the 50/50 mix of narr and golden narr's.  Anyway, just wanted to share her pic.  They are not that good because they were a quick iPhone snapshot.

Nice!!!
I hatched out several Golden Narr's this year and kept a pair. I got mine by crossing a bronze hen with a red gene to a wild bronze tom that carried a Narr gene. At least that is where I think they came from.    Turkey color genetics is interesting and I am getting more and more into it due to Porter's website.

Looking forward next spring to the poult order I placed with him!

I hatch a bunch of Kevin Porters eggs this year and they were nice eggs and poults.  He shipped me 14 Sweetgrass eggs late this summer and I  was worried because the USPS took 4 days to get here in over 100 deg heat.  I did pay the extra for the cold pack and I think it did save the eggs.  I put the 14 eggs in the Dickey's and got 7 poults that are all doing great now at about 4 weeks old.  I think 50% is pretty good for late season turkeys shipped from North IN to Texas in 100+ deg weather that took 4 days!

What a pretty, pretty girl!!!  Boy, I wish I could enlarge my operation to include a couple more breeds of turkeys.  Golden Narris would DEFINITELY be on my list.

Lor-Greg's main chick, Mom to eight kids, 3 dogs, no one knows how many cats, two Jersey cows, four dairy goats, Giant Cochins, Bourbon Turkeys, Midget White Turkeys, and now Standard Bronze Turkeys.

Greetings,

 

We have rescued a 6 year old Narragansett Tom turkey. He has never had a hen turkey in his midst. I'm looking for a hen for him and I think the golden breed is very beautiful. He is the "normal" coloring that has been in existence since the 1800's. Does anyone have a hen that would make a good mate for him? My chicken hens don't get his displaying. He's very beautiful, a bit thin (not for long!!!! ).

I live in Eugene, OR.

 

Thank you so so much,

 

Terri
