The Ridley turkey originated in Saskatchewan in the mid-1800's. The breed was once very popular in it's homeland until it was seemingly replaced by Broad-breasted varieties, and the breed fell out of favour. They was extirpated in Saskatchewan, but was fortunately saved from total extinction in Ontario.
