The Narragansett is considered a rare heritage breed turkey. The Narragansett turkey got its name from Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, where the variety was developed. This turkey was derived from turkeys and the domestic turkeys (probably Norfolk Blacks) brought to America by English and European colonists beginning in the 1600s. It was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874.

The Narragansett color pattern, which is similar to the Bronze, contains black, gray, tan, and white. The white wing bars are the result of a genetic mutation that removes the bronze coloration and is not known outside the United States. The standard weight for young hens is 14 pounds and toms 23 pounds. This breed can mate naturally.

Narragansett turkeys have traditionally been known for their calm disposition, good maternal abilities, early maturation, egg production, and excellent meat quality. They make an excellent backyard and farm turkey and are very good with the insect population.
