The Slate or Blue Slate variety is named for its color, which is solid to
ashy blue over the entire body, with or without a few black flecks. It is
also called the Blue or Lavender turkey. The Standard weight for a young tom
is 23 pounds and 14 pounds for a young hen. Since, however, the Slate has
not been selected for production attributes, including weight gain, in
years, many birds may be smaller than the standard. Careful selection for
good health, ability to mate naturally, and production attributes will
return this variety to its former stature.
