I'm thinking of getting into this rare breed and looking for more information. Anyone here have any experience with them? What size they became, how hardy they are and do they breed naturally well? Also speaking of breeding anyone have any experince with their parthenogenisis? (fertility of eggs without a Tom in the flock is said to be about 40% in this breed) If you have did the parthenogenic offspring develope normally?

Thanks in advance!

I too would be interested in this turkey. They are a good homestead turkey as they are able to reproduce on their own because they are on the smaller side. I have read that they are a pretty hardy bird.
