RIDLEY BRONZE TURKEY – Canada’s only surviving heritage turkey breed which is currently in grave danger of becoming extinct. This turkey type was created during the 1940's by J.H. Richardson of Saltcoats SK. At that time he had in mind his “ideal” turkey, which would be large, able to forage well, calm natured, hardy and able to reproduce naturally. He traveled all over Canada and the US, getting stock upon which he based his breeding program. He eventually created his ideal, and once that happened, never again added in any new stock.
