The Bronze (Meleagris gallopavo) is a breed of domestic turkey whose name refers to its plumage, which bears an iridescent bronze-like sheen. It is a brown colour which is highlighted by shades of copper and blue-green, and the plumage overall is very similar to that of the wild turkey. In fact, it is the product of crossing domestic turkeys brought from England, with the wild turkey. These matings produced a bird that was larger and more robust than the European turkeys, and tamer than wild turkeys. There are two types: the Broad Breasted Bronze and the Standard Bronze, which are very similar.
