Our Turkey Gallery.
We are delighted to welcome you to our turkey gallery. Here you will find some photographs taken at random from around our small holding. There are some pictures of the orchard, the top paddock, our dogs, chickens and lambs, but mostly the photographs are of our beloved turkeys. The pictures range from turkey poults hatching in the incubators; turkey poults in the brooders; the turkey poults enjoying their first days outside, to our adult birds.
Breeding and Rearing Turkeys.
We have been breeding and rearing turkeys for a great many years and now we have retired, (at least from our salaried careers!) we have even more time to devote to our beloved turkeys. In the past, heritage turkeys have been cross bred so many times that their original qualities and features are fast disappearing – in fact it is almost impossible to find a pure bred Norfolk Black turkey anywhere in the United Kingdom. At Cornwall Turkeys, it is our ambition and aim in life to breed perfect Norfolk Black and Bourbon Red turkeys.
We thoroughly enjoy every moment of our turkeys’ life with us. From the moment the eggs start hatching, to the poults chirping and pipping in the incubators, to their first flights and beyond, these turkeys are our babies and we adore each and everyone of them..
