Bronze Turkeys are named for their metallic bronze plumage. They are the product of cross breeding domestic turkeys brought by European colonists and wild turkeys found in North America. Bronze turkeys are larger and tamer than European turkeys. They became the commercial variety of turkey meat in the early 21st century. Today Bronze turkeys are not primarily used by turkey industries and are only used for seasonal small scale production.
