Royal Palm Turkey
The Royal Palm is a strikingly attractive and small-sized turkey variety. The first birds in America to have the Palm color pattern appeared in a mixed flock of Black, Bronze, Narragansett, and Wild turkeys in Florida in the 1920s. Further selection has been made since then to stabilize the consistency of color and other characteristics. Royal Palms are active, thrifty turkeys, excellent foragers, and good flyers. Standard weights are 16 pounds for young toms and 10 pounds for young hens. The Royal Palm has a role to play on small farms, for home production of meat or where its ability to control insect pests would be of value.
