Attwells is to introduce another colour-themed, vintage turkey breed for Christmas. Bourbon Red, first bred in the US, is a slow-maturing turkey with moist, white flesh. Attwells will also supply its Bronze bird again - a vintage breed introduced in 2006. Both will be available through butchers.

Meanwhile, Traditional Norfolk Turkeys will supply Asda with more Slate Blue birds this Christmas, after the Extra Special turkey line sold out in 2006.
