Origin, economic and morphological characteristics

Starting from the Bronzato dAmerica turkey, German breeders have selected the German Bronzato.
The main differences lie in longer tarsi and more slender and vertical appearance of the trunk.
The feathers of the tail and the over-tail have a brown terminal band instead of a white one.
All this makes it very similar to the wild turkey of the subspecies silvestris but this however has a very long grit of bristles in the central part of the breast.

Weight:
- Male 12-15 kg
- Female 6-8 kg
