a hatchery has them and says there rare. but i cant find much info on them
From what little I can find, Artisan Gold is a brand name associated with a variety of black turkeys. They are being processed and being sold under the brand name of Artisan Gold. They are not actually saying what breed of turkey they are marketing. One reference indicates they are a hybrid turkey which I would not expect to breed true. They are not a broad breasted turkey. My best guess is it is just a marketing scam to get the highest price they can for black turkeys.a hatchery has them and says there rare. but i cant find much info on them
Heritage Narragansetts can breed naturally.I got 3 artisan golds yesterday. They are marketed as rare. But truly don't seem to be. They don't breed, and must be artificially inseminated...
My heritage narragansetts don't breed as is, now this. Thought I'd post some info on them
You bought them as Artisan Blacks. If you want to call them that it is fine but they are still nothing more than a Black turkey.So...if I decide to start breeding them, what would I describe them as? Standard black turkeys? Heritage Black? Artisan Gold? This is all very complicated :/
