Hi there it’s me ANN
With a true tale about Goldie and Slate
Bronze turkeys are the product of crossing domestic turkeys brought from Europe by colonists (which had been exported to Europe years before) with the Wild Turkey. These matings produced a bird that was larger and more robust than the European turkeys, and tamer than wild turkeys. Though the Bronze turkey type was created in the 18th century, the actual name was not used until the 1830s, when a strain developed in the U.S. state of Rhode Island was named the Point Judith Bronze. The name later spread to be used in reference to the breed as a whole, and was in the process simplified to just "Bronze". In the British Isles, the Bronze was associated with Cambridge, and was called the Cambridge Bronze, but again this name has been simplified to just "Bronze".
See Slate? Blue Clematis
known as the Spanish Black in the United States and the Norfolk Black in
The Slate was accepted as a standard variety by the American Poultry Association
in 1874, incidentally the same year as the Spanish Black. You may call me SLATE!
