Happy Thanksgiving to the american friends..how many of you are celebrating with the American Bronze Turkey?
Historically, the American Bronze Turkey has been the most popular turkey variety in the US.
Its exact origin is obscure though it does include a cross between the eastern species of North American wild turkey and the domestic turkeys brought by colonists from Europe.
The color is copper bronze, with a background of brown and black, and white bars on the tail.
The Broad-breasted Bronze was replaced by the Large White (or Broad-breasted White) turkey beginning in the 1960s. Processors favored the white feathered variety because it produced a cleaner-looking carcass.
Today, the Broad-breasted Bronze is no longer used by the turkey industry, but it is promoted for seasonal, small-scale production.
