Back in June we bought a pair of blue slate turkeys at the livestock auction ( one of my favorite places to go). Blue slate turkeys are a heritage breed of turkey and a very rare breed. Heritage breed turkeys can breed naturally unlike the commercial breeds the broad breasted bronze and white. They are gaining some popularity, because of their better flavor. We are hoping to get some poults from them next year. The tom has a additude and tries to attack you when you turn your back. A few years ago we raised broad breasted bronze and they were the dumbest birds I have ever raised. These blue slates are however pretty smart and fun to have around.
