Royal Palm Turkey


The Royal Palm Turkey is one of the smaller varieties of turkeys and is mainly used for ornamental purposes. The average weight of a Royal Pam is about 22 lbs for males and 12 lbs for females. The birds are always pretty active and are great at foraging. They are also very good flyers.

The Royal Pam turkey is not for the serial commercial production. But they are great birds to bred and raised by one who loves birds with character. They are lively but generally calm. The birds are ideal for small family farms. Their meat is tasty and even if you are not raising it for its meat then the birds help to keep a check on the insects around.

Features

It is a bit difficult to tell a male from a female Royal Palm turkey immediately after birth. One of the ways to distinguish is from the snood. While the males have a larger and round snood, in females it is slightly smaller and triangular shaped. But this is not always the best way to differentiate.

The sexing can also be done by looking for beards. The males will develop beards quickly while the hens generally will not. However some of the hens will have beards but they develop beards at a later stage, almost when they are a couple of years old.

Hens also are seen to strut, but most hens will discontinue strutting as they grow older.

Raising

Although these are smaller among turkeys, we must remember that these are actually pretty large birds and they generally do require a little extra space to be comfortable. A floor area of about 20 sq ft is ideal for a bird. So if you are raising around half a dozen birds you will need 12 x 10 pen. More the area you can provide the better these birds will feel as they will have the opportunity to roam around.

The pen should have good drainage as the turkeys prefer dry soil. If your pen is comparatively smaller you will need to care more about the pen and clean it regularly so that the environment inside the pen remains suitable for the birds. Also make sure that your turkeys have the pen exclusive to them and do not mix them with other birds. This might lead to them catching disease from other birds.
