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.
Kerusso Farms was officially started in 2010 but we have been gardening organically, on our fertile land, since 2004. We built our home, started a garden and then acquired many farm animals such as, chickens, cows, ducks, pigs, horses, goats, cats, dogs and recently a ferret. We have been using sustainable farming practices from the beginning. (more...)
