This is a rare heritage turkey. My sweetgrass are very good layers in the spring and they taste excellent. One of my hens hatched a hatch of 6 chicks in her first year of laying. This is my personal favorite breed of turkey and they are super friendly. My sweetgrass always come up to me and greet me every day. They are very resilient and cold hardy. A great breed. They do very well for free ranging. I have also never had any of my toms show interest in or attacking me.
