    "Hardy, small breed"
    Pros - Hardy, good mothers
    Cons - Slow growers, a smaller breed, hard to find
    I really like my chocolate turkeys. Their meat has more of a game taste to it and they are a little on the flighty side. They are friendly and good mothers. I have a chocolate hen that wants to do nothing but lay on eggs. They are very good for free ranging.
