McMurray Broad Breasted Bronze

Murray’s Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey is the crown jewel of premium broad-breasted turkeys. With excellent conformation and high meat quality, these bronze beauties have nearly a century of breeding excellence behind them.

This variety is one of the largest, and heaviest, turkey varieties in North America. Often referred to as the quintessential Thanksgiving turkey., these immense birds can measure up to four feet in length with a six-foot wing span. Full-grown toms (males) will weigh in at 39-40 pounds at 20 weeks, while hens (females) average 23 pounds at 18 weeks.

McMurray’s White Midget

Murray’s Midget White Turkey is a smaller bird that offers larger flexibility when raising your own fowl.

Murray’s Midget White Turkeys average 26 pounds at 18 weeks for Toms (males), and just under 16 pounds at 16 weeks for hens (females). Results will vary based on feeding programs, environment, flock health, growing densities, etc.

McMurray’s Artisan Black Turkey

Murray’s Broad-Breasted Artisan Black Turkey is a unique production variety with heritage-esque characteristics. These unique fowl have a hearty flavor unlike other production and broad-breasted varieties. 

These smaller and slower-growing turkeys are a rich black fowl with unique face and feet coloring and long black legs, and thrive in a free-range setting.      

Murray’s Broad-Breasted Artisan Black Turkeys average 20 pounds at 20 weeks for Toms (males), and 11-12 pounds at 16 weeks for hens (females). Results will vary based on feeding programs, environment, flock health, growing densities, etc.

Pearl Guinea Keets

The Pearl Guinea is the most common variety of guinea fowl kept in the U.S. today. Originating in Africa, guinea fowl is often seen in nature shows posing as a look-out around water holes. 

Today guinea fowl are popular with farmers and homesteaders for pest control and their loud calls. Guineas are easy to raise and are active foragers that thrive on weeds, seeds, and insects such as ticks. They are also good at alerting their owners and flock to predators or other unusual occurrences. 

As a meat bird, guineas are raised for their all-dark, gamey-tasting meat. 

Until 12 weeks of age, different colors of guinea keets will look similar and be difficult to distinguish. 

We recommend a minimum of 5 keets per purchase.
