Breed Details:
The Narragansett is an active turkey but tends to stick close to home. They have always been praised for their high quality meat, egg production, good size, calm disposition and good mothering instincts. Toms average 30 lbs and hens around 18 lbs. In color, the Narragansett is similar to the historic Bronze Turkey but with the signature bronze being replaced by more of a steel gray. The tail is a lighter tan in color. It has a horn colored beak and a black beard. The head and neck ranges in color from blueish white to red and is mostly featherless. There is a very rare mutation of the Narragansett called the Silver, in which pure white replaced the gray and tan coloring. While never recognized by the APA, the Silver mutation still occasionally appears in normal flocks.
