The Uzbek pale breed is bred on the beautiful lands of Uzbekistan, thanks to careful selection of local turkeys and considerable efforts of the eminent poultry breeder N. Zolotukhin. Birds are perfectly adapted to the conditions of growing in Asia. A wide distribution was received in Uzbekistan, Tatarstan and the North Caucasus. However, there are a number of drawbacks, which include the slow growth of turkeys, low egg production, and the relatively low quality of meat
The breed is unpretentious neither to the conditions and place of detention, nor to feeding. They are of the middle kind. They have an average trunk, a rather large species. The head is also of medium size, from the side it seems a little narrow. The neck has a long and elongated appearance. Legs of medium length. Feathering red-brown or as it is also called – pale yellow. It looks very beautiful. This appearance helps the bird become a decoration of the yard when breeding at home
By its size, the adult turkey of the Uzbek pale breed is inferior to the representatives of the white and bronze breeds. Live weight of males is about 10 kilograms, and females about 5 kilograms. Young growth at the age of 16 weeks has an average weight of about 4 kilograms. But at such an early age is not subject to slaughter, so it is necessary to nurture a bird before reaching adulthood
Yaytsenoskost is quite low, for 1 cycle the number of eggs does not exceed 65 pieces. The withdrawability of them is only 68 percent. But thanks to the fact that birds have a high survival rate, are unpretentious to the content, are able to feed themselves without much expense, almost all the brood of young animals can be grown to adulthood
Some turkeys can fly well, and can sit on rooftops and trees for a long time. In summer they must be kept under shelters in special pens. When using the paddock, you can save up to 50 percent of cash on feeding. In winter, the bird is kept in warm and comfortable rooms, for example, in polycarbonate greenhouses. It is necessary to develop a system of proper nutrition so that in the cold season, along with food, individuals receive sufficient nutrients to ensure their normal growth and development. Food should be carried out according to a certain schedule with the use of various biological supplements.
