About us – Phoenix Rare Breed Turkeys
Welcome to my website. My name is David Hawkeswood and I live in the Cotswolds – a truly beautiful part of the country. I first got involved with keeping turkeys about six years ago when l met my wife, Sarah. It was a case of love me, love my turkeys! Since then, my wife and I have set up our rare breeds farm which is home to chickens, ducks, geese and of course my pride and joy, my lovely rare breed turkeys.
We also keep about one hundred and twenty commercial breed turkeys purely for their eggs. Sarah sells these eggs at local markets. I am passionate at protecting the rare breed turkey bloodlines and here at the farm, I am proud to say that I keep all ten rare breeds of turkey.
I am also proud to be working with some other well established turkey breeders who share my aims of conserving and protecting the rare breed turkeys. This is a great way to pool knowledge and ensure a safe and secure future for all of our rare breed turkeys.
Turkey Breeds kept by Phoenix Rare Breed Turkeys include:
Crimson dawn ( Black Winged Bronze)
as well as the non-standard varieties of Turkeys we keep:
Wild American Bronze
North American Bush Turkey
I have presently got projects going on to preserve these beautiful birds, working hand in hand with other breeders and organizations.
