About Slate TurkeysAbout Slate Turkeys



The Slate Turkey, also known as the American Blue orrnLavender Turkey, is variety of turkey that isrnashy blue over the entire body, sometimes with a few black flecks. The slate coloring is the  result of a combination of mutation (onerndominant and one recessive) .


The Slate variety wasrnaccepted by the American Poultry Association in 1874. It has been popular inrnexhibition circles and is gaining popularity in pastured poultry production.rnRenewed interest in the biological fitness, survivability, and superior flavorrnof the Slate has captured consumer interest and created a growing market niche.rnThe Slate is less well documented and more variable in type and color than anyrnother variety. This makes it more challenging to breed consistently than thernothers. Its production potential today is not known.
